Are school technology investments paying off?

Wednesday, June 26, 2013

Schools are not getting a big enough bang for their education technology buck, according to a new report.

While computers and internet access are common in the classroom, students are often using this technology for simple foundational exercises, rather than for higher-order data analysis or statistics work that will help prepare them for the modern workforce, the report from the Center for American Progress found. This issue is most prevalent in schools with primarily low-income students, further widening the digital divide.
