This investigation utilized a blended learning environment with technologically enhanced curriculum via G Suite for Education, Schoology, and GradeSpeed to enhance classroom instruction and analyzed their effects on student communication and academic success. Students were provided individual accounts for G Suite and those accounts were enrolled in Schoology Learning Management System. These platforms allowed 103 students to discuss the class content with their peers, turn in assignments online, and have access to online textbooks, test preparation material, videos, and supplemental science information. In addition, students participated in technology enhanced and non-technology enhanced lessons to compare engagement behaviors and academic accomplishment in both settings. At the conclusion of the research, student academic performance improved with the blended learning environment.
