How technology effect students ability to learn
Technology uses improves performance in all subjects especially in English and Math.
Technology is introduced to all students at every grade level. Teachers have to incorporate the use of
technology in their instructional activities. So I have demonstrated what I compared Wayne Township
ISTEPS scores in the year 1996 to the year 2008. As you can see the score in year 2008 is a slightly higher
than the year of 1996 and one reason is due to the students ability have more use on the computers.

Technology allows teachers to demonstrate different strategies for learning.
Technology is used in training to help organize and provide the necessary tools and

Educational technology has demonstrated a significant positive effect on
achievement within all major subject areas for students in grades K-16.
Educational technology has been found to have positive effects on student
attitudes toward learning and on student self-concept.
The level of effectiveness of educational technology is influenced by the specific
student population, the software design, the teacher's role, how the students are
grouped and the level of student access to the technology.
Introducing technology into the learning environment has been shown to make
learning more student-centered, to encourage cooperative learning, and to
stimulate increased teacher/student interaction.
Courses for which computer-based networks were used increased student-student
and student-teacher interaction, specifically with lower-performing students, and
did not decrease traditional forms of communication.
