Effects of Technology on Student Learning



The purpose of this study was to analyze the effects of technology on student learning. With the ever-changing world of technology, classrooms are gaining more technology and having to incorporate it into student learning. Although technology can benefit student learning, it can also be detrimental to the educational process. Technology enhances many learning opportunities and allows for student comfort but can also be a tool that is too heavily relied on and can potentially effect student fine motor development and problem-solving skills. In this research study, the researchers surveyed to K-12 educators to get feedback on how technology effects their classroom. This research helped determine how technology effects student learning. The findings showed that more training for teachers and students are necessary to better implement technology in the classroom. Furthermore, this research pointed out that students are more engaged and comfortable with technology, yet they can become a management concern.
