The Effects of Educational Technology upon the Critical Thinking and Analytical Skills of Below Grade-Level and or Non-College Bound High School Students.
Santavenere, Alex
An action research study was undertaken to examine the effects of educational technology resources on critical thinking and analytical skills. The researcher observed 3 different 11th grade classes, a total of 75 students, over a week as they worked in the school's computer lab. Each class was composed of 25 to 30 students, all of whom were considered "noncollege bound" or below-grade level academic status. The researcher prepared a list of questions and then interviewed students at random to determine their responses to the use of technology and the WebQuest software unit on World War II. An interview was also held with the teacher. Findings from the students and the teacher supported the hypothesis that educational technology supported the critical thinking and analytical skills of students who were below grade level or not planning on college.
