Does More Tech in the Classroom Help Kids Learn?

Does More Tech in the Classroom Help Kids Learn? | READ 180 | Scoop.it

"Teachers are finding that blending technology into the learning experience offers kids a crucial leg up in the classroom. Karen Martinez’s daughter, Daniella, graduated fifth grade with honors this year and is now reading at a sixth grade level. Just two years ago, she was diagnosed as a special-needs child who struggled with reading. What made the change? Her mother pulled her out of a school that rarely used computers for learning, enrolling her in Rocketship Education, one of five charter schools in San Jose, California. Students there spend 25% of their school day in a computer lab with online content targeted to their development level. 'My daughter was broken and now she’s starting to mend,' Martinez says."
