Technology can close at-risk-student achievement gaps

As school districts around the country consider investing in technology as a way to improve student outcomes, a new report from the Alliance for Excellent Education and the Stanford Center for Opportunity Policy in Education (SCOPE) finds that technology—when implemented properly—can produce significant gains in student achievement and boost engagement, particularly among students most at risk. "This report makes clear that districts must have a plan in place for how they will use technology before they make a purchase," said Bob Wise, president of the Alliance for Excellent Education and former governor of West Virginia. "It also underscores that replacing teachers with technology is not a successful formula. Instead, strong gains in achievement occur by pairing technology with classroom teachers who provide real-time support and encouragement to underserved students."
