dc.description.abstractThis research utilized a variety of technologies to supplement instruction in the classroom and analyzed their effects on student learning and motivation as well as parent involvement. Students were given access to a website that allowed them to discuss the class content with their peers, turn in assignments online, and have access to online test preparation material and supplemental science information. Class reminders were sent using communication technology via texts and email and were sent to both parents and students. Updates on grades and missing assignments were sent to parents via e-mail through the online gradebook, Infinite Campus. In addition, students participated in technology focused and non-technology focused lessons to compare engagement behaviors in both settings. Overall, student and parent engagement increased with technology and a possible increase in student performance was noted.en
