Integrating Technology for Academic Achievement in Phonics and Fluency
Mason, Hope I.
With the push for teacher accountability and the controversy concerning high-stakes testing, more teachers are looking for systematic ways to increase academic achievement. If the U.S. is to regain its global position as number 1 in the education arena, education policy must dictate that teachers integrate technology as a regular part of core instruction to improve academic achievement. This action research seeks to investigate methods to close the achievement gap and prove that gains are made by high risk students in reading using various technological tools in the classrooms. A bibliography is included.
