Technology for Learning: Promising Practices

Date posted: June 28, 2016

How can technology and digital learning experiences be best used to support learning for underserved, under-resourced, and underprepared students? Often the introduction of technology to learning has not achieved the expected results.

Promising Practices: A Literature Review of Technology Use by Underserved Students is a new report that summarizes research findings about the conditions and practices that support positive outcomes of technology use for these student populations. It identifies seven factors that lead to good results:

  • One-to-one access to devices
  • High speed Internet access
  • Technology promoting high levels of interactivity and discovery
  • Right blend of teachers and technology
  • Learning activities that focus on development of higher order thinking skills
  • Learning activities that draw on culture and community
