Promising Practices: A Literature Review Of Technology Use By Underserved Students

Abstract

"The authors summarize research findings about the conditions and practices that support positive outcomes of technology use and digital learning experiences for underserved, under-resourced, and underprepared students.

How can technologies and digital learning experiences be used to support underserved, under-resourced, and underprepared students?

For many years, educators, researchers, and policy makers looking for strategies to close the achievement gap and improve student learning have sought solutions involving new uses of technology, especially for students considered to be at risk of failing. However, the results of various technology initiatives for these students have been mixed. As often as not, the introduction of technology into classrooms has failed to achieve the grand expectations proponents anticipated. The educational landscape is replete with stories and studies about how specific student populations were unable to benefit from particular innovations that feature the use of technology for teaching and learning.

This report summarizes research findings about the conditions and practices that support positive outcomes of technology use for these student populations."
