Why PT3? An Analysis of the Impact of Educational Technology
Kmitta, Daniel; Davis, John
Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), v4 n3 p323-344 2004
This paper 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. Using the most recent literature reviews, recent studies, and survey research that was not included in the most recent reviews, our synthesis of the data demonstrates an overall positive effect that computers have on student achievement and on the school environment. It also appears that using the latest computer technologies to keep the United States competitive in the global economy is cost effective.
