Abstract

The Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE), through the Technology Rich Classroom (TRC) Program, has offered Enhancing Education through Technology (EETT) competitive grant awards to grades three through eight in Kansas since 2003. This study examines the effects of a Technology Rich Classroom environment including the differences in teacher and student use of technology, classroom grouping strategies and higher order thinking skills utilized in classrooms. The study described in this paper provides some evidence that including technology in a classroom, training teachers how to use the technology, and providing support for technology use may change many aspects of the learning environment.
