Abstract

Empirical data from a secondary school that took steps to increase technology integration in its classrooms with the long-term goal of raising student achievement are presented. Results from the analysis of this data indicate positive effects from the implementation of two grants designed to bridge the digital divide. Research confirms that the results from this case study are consistent with the methods for success in implementing technology as a tool to improve student achievement. Future study should involve further data collection via teacher evaluations of the professional development process and the analysis of the results from standardized test scores to confirm the positive impact of technology on student achievement.
