Abstract

This study presents evidence that web based multimedia Mathematics, Science and Reading lessons for 3rd, 4th, 5th and 8th grade students appear to enhance learning in low English proficient and low-income Native American learners. Since 1999 the Navajo Education Technology Consortium's (NETC) TECHShare project, funded under the Star Schools program, has developed over 260 multimedia lessons to improve student learning. The primary target population for the study is located within or near the Navajo Nation, with the majority of the students performing well below the national average in academic achievement. To assess the effect that these TECHShare lessons have had on student achievement, the Model Classroom Study was conducted to gather rich qualitative information combined with pre to post test improvement results on selected web based multimedia lessons. The results of a paired t-test study found that, on average, there was a significant increase from the pre test (M= 57%) to the posttest (M= 79%) of about 22%.
