Leveraging Technology in Education
Strengthening Early Math
Nationally, schools are attempting to increase the use of technology in the classroom. In collaboration with PwC, Leveraging Technology in Education, provides information the current scope of technology in education, as well as best practices to guide further integration of technology into schools.
When it comes to mathematics, California educators face two basic challenges. The first is to make sure every student who graduates from high school has high enough competencies and strong enough math skills to function well in a complex society.
A recent independent study by WestEd found that Elevate [Math] was more than two times as effective as similar summer intervention programs and showed that students in the program were 2.4 times as likely to be algebra-ready as those that did not participate.
