To understand the value and impact of technology, one must recognize that there have been three distinct phases in technology uses and expectations: Print Automation, Expansion of Learning Opportunities, and Data-Driven Virtual Learning. This report takes an in-depth look at these three phases and, for each, addresses two important and highly interrelated questions facing educators as they try to determine the best use of technology in K-12 settings: (1) What evidence is there that the use of computer-based technology in each phase has a positive effect on learning? and (2) What significance do the findings from each phase have for educators today as they try to make technology-related decisions that have an impact on student learning? The conclusions of this report provide cumulative findings over the three phases, which are intended to help informed educators, policymakers, school administrators, school technical coordinators, and researchers make research-based decisions regarding the most beneficial approaches to technology use in K-12 education.
