Why PT3: An Analysis of the Impact of Educational Technology

, , University of Idaho, United States

Abstract

This article examines three questions regarding the use of computer technologies and education. The first question addresses the effects of computer technologies on student achievement, the second regards the effects of computer technologies on school climate, and the final question examines the cost efficacy of computer technologies in our nation’s schools. This study uses the most recent literature reviews, coupled with studies not included in these reviews, and survey research that was not included in either the reviews or the most recent studies. In the synthesis of the data we have determined that there is an over all positive effect that computers have on student achievement and on the school environment and that it is cost-effective to use the latest computer technologies to keep our society competitive in the global economy.
