|Technology in Schools|
Integrating technology into the work lives of both students and adults to support more ambitious teaching and learning
Anthony Bryk leads this project with general support from the MacArthur and Hewlett Foundations for “Goal 1 Type Research,” and support from the IES for a randomized trial of the efficacy of adding a web-based collaborative learning to the Literacy Collaborative professional development program. This is a “Goal 2 Type Study”.
Technology has transformed virtually every work place except schools. Moreover, technology is likely to play an especially important role in making school practice more evidence based. Many new tools are entering the educational marketplace, but there has been little systematic evaluation of them to date. The current IES study is just the beginning of what we expect will be an expanding Stanford research program around technology and schooling.
