Notes

Abstract: The literature suggests a strong positive correlation between the success of students using technology in an effective manner and improvement in standardized test scores. Using technology to teach math will improve student skills not only in math, but also in using technology as well. Unfortunately, there are three major barriers that impede progress in implementing this idea: cost, training, and technology failure. Teachers are skeptical, and rightly so, about how much progress can be made when continual updates and installations are constantly putting the technology on hold. This paper analyzes how these concepts, ideas, and problems have been discussed in the past in order to form a solid platform that will support technology in schools in the future. It will also discuss the suggestive findings of the project and how future research on this topic could be improved.
