The Effects of Technology on Learning Education psychology Abstract: Today our world is surrounded with some of the greatest pieces of technology that have ever been created. Technology has become one of the leading ways to enhance learning and make the classroom a more effective place. Each year policymakers are Implanting new ways to better our education and through technology the accomplishments of our students will, In the future, will be far greater than we ever expected. Hypothesis:
The use of technology in classrooms is spreading all over the world and the affects of it will only bring academic achievement to an all time high. In my experiment I would use 3 groups of third graders from 3 different schools and test them over a period often years. The first classroom that I would study would go without the use of technology. They would only have the chalk board, flash cards, and things not ran electronically. My second classroom that I would study would be allowed to use technology but would be constantly monitored by an adult.
The third lass that I would study would be allowed to use any technology and have unlimited access. I would break up the study into semesters therefore I could see if there was a change in the performance of the student. Each classroom would swap whether they had technology the previous semester and from this I would gather results and information on how technology based classrooms differ from those without technology. One thing that I would include in my study is special education studies. I would also like to see how they too are affected by technology in the classroom.
While doing the experiment I think that some problems that I may run into are: How the teacher allows the students to use technology in the classroom because each teacher Is deferent in how they structure classroom activities. I think some positive potential findings would be that those using technology would score greater on test than those not using technology. I think students would learn more In less time because of the convenience of technology and lastly I think that It could possibly affect the attitudes of students.
If students are enjoying the use of the technology In the classroom then they will find the classroom to be a more enjoyable place as well. Some of the negative potential findings would be that student’s academic achievement wouldn’t change but stay the same and the use of technology would only Improve In some subject fields and not all. Effects of Technology on Learning By edibility 129 implanting new ways to better our education and through technology the accomplishments of our students will, in the future, will be far greater than we ever s different in how they structure classroom activities.
I think some positive potential not using technology. I think students would learn more in less time because of the convenience of technology and lastly I think that it could possibly affect the attitudes of students. If students are enjoying the use of the technology in the classroom then negative potential findings.
