Attitudes toward science : how technology impacts student engagement and success
Information and communication technologies were implemented with the purpose of improving student performance as well as increase the number of students with positive attitudes towards learning science. Classroom activities, homework assignments, alternative forms of submission of assignments, assessments, and contact outside of class were conducted with various forms of information and communication technologies. Students demonstrated an increase in positive attitudes towards learning science through technology-based modalities. However, more study with a larger sample size needs to be completed to determine if increase in student academic performance was a result of the treatment outlined here.
