Harnessing Technology in Out-of-School Time Settings. Out-of-School Time Evaluation Snapshot. Number 7
Harvard Family Research Project, Harvard University
Harvard Family Research Project's series of Out-of-School Time Evaluation Snapshots distills the wealth of information compiled in our Out-of-School Time Program Evaluation Database and Bibliography into a single report. Each Snapshot examines a specific aspect of out-of-school time (OST) evaluation. This Snapshot draws on information from Harvard Family Research Project's (HFRP) ongoing review of OST programs and their evaluations to provide an overview of technology-focused programming in the nonschool hours. It culls information from all of the programs and evaluations in HFRP's Out-of-School Time Program Evaluation Bibliography that focus on using technology. Specifically, this Snapshot examines how OST programs and initiatives are utilizing technology, how these programs and initiatives are being evaluated, and what implementation and outcomes lessons can be learned from this set of evaluations. In addition, this Snapshot illuminates some promising strategies for and challenges to incorporating technology into OST programs. (Contains 6 notes.)
