Using Digital Technology to Improve Learning
PERU's Andrew Smith and Man Met ESRI's Professor Cathy Lewin recently carried out a comprehensive review of global evidence describing the effectiveness of digital technologies in raising attainment in schools. Their work is the basis of an Education Endowment Foundation guidance report published on 29th March 2019.
"The guidance report is designed to support senior leaders and teachers to make better informed decisions based on the best available evidence we currently have. It includes a number of practical examples of technology being used in ways which support improved teaching (e.g., by increasing the accuracy of teacher assessment) or improve pupil learning (e.g., by increasing the quality and quantity of pupil practice)."
