The effect of individualized digital practice at home on math skills–Evidence from a two-stage experiment on whether and why it works
Computers & Education Vol. 113, No. 1 (October 2017) pp. 119–134
This paper analyses an experiment on the effect of an individualized, digital practice tool on numeracy skills for 337 seventh grade students. The first stage of the experiment shows that offering students the opportunity to practice numeracy...
SMART in Mathematics? Exploring the effects of in-class-level differentiation using SMARTboard on math proficiency
British Journal of Educational Technology Vol. 48, No. 1 (January 2017) pp. 145–161
This paper explored the effects of in-class-level differentiation by making innovative use of an interactive whiteboard (SMARTboard) on math proficiency. Therefore, this paper evaluates the use of SMARTboard in class, in combination with teacher...
Is a schools’ performance related to technical change? – A study on the relationship between innovations and secondary school productivity
Computers & Education Vol. 59, No. 3 (November 2012) pp. 884–892
This paper examines the relation between innovations and productivity in Dutch secondary schools. Innovation clusters are directly included in the production model. In order to correct for differences between schools, we add school type, region and...
