No Effect of Educational Technology on Math and Reading Scores

Posted: April 6, 2007 in Educational Technology, Instructional Technology, Math, Reading, Technology, Technology Integration

You can click on links from the following web page to the full report by the National Center for Education Evaluation and Regional Assistance on the effectiveness of education technology. Their site states:

“Test scores were not significantly higher in classrooms using the reading and mathematics software products than those in control classrooms. In each of the four groups of products-reading in first grade and in fourth grade, mathematics in sixth grade, and high school algebra-the evaluation found no significant differences in student achievement between the classrooms that used the technology products and classrooms that did not.”

What do you think about the results?
