What do studies show about school tech initiatives?Courtesy of ASCD

U.S. classrooms are entering the age of "personalized digital learning," James Marshall Crotty writes in this blog post. Schools are scrambling to implement one-to-one laptop or tablet programs, add interactive whiteboards and train teachers in education-technology use, while major educational publishers have come out with new digital programs and content that personalize instruction and assessment. Although some studies indicate those efforts produce more engaged students, Crotty writes, it is unclear where credit belongs: technology or other factors, such as improved teacher training.
