The study presented in this article examines the impact of the Harvest Park Middle School’s laptop immersion program on student learning. Specific research questions include the following:Von James Cengiz Gulek, Hakan Demirtas im Text Learning With Technology: The Impact of Laptop Use on Student Achievement (2005)
- Does the laptop program have an impact on students’ grade point average?
- Does the laptop program have an impact on students’ end-ofcourse grades?
- Does the laptop program have an impact on students’ essay writing skills?
- Does the laptop program have an impact on students’ standardized test scores?
Rapid technological advances in the last decade have sparked educational practitioners’ interest in utilizing laptops as an instructional tool to improve student learning. There is substantial evidence that using technology as an instructional tool enhances student learning and educational outcomes. Past research suggests that compared to their nonlaptop counterparts, students in classrooms that provide all students with their own laptops spend more time involved in collaborative work, participate in more project-based instruction, produce writing of higher quality and greater length, gain increased access to information, improve research analysis skills, and spend more time doing homework on computers. Research has also shown that these students direct their own learning, report a greater reliance on active learning strategies, readily engage in problem solving and critical thinking, and consistently show deeper and more flexible uses of technology than students without individual laptops. The study presented here examined the impact of participation in a laptop program on student achievement. A total of 259 middle school students were followed via cohorts. The data collection measures included students’ overall cumulative grade point averages (GPAs), end-of-course grades, writing test scores, and state-mandated norm- and criterion-referenced standardized test scores. The baseline data for all measures showed that there was no statistically significant difference in English language arts, mathematics, writing, and overall grade point average achievement between laptop and non-laptop students prior to enrollment in the program. However, laptop students showed significantly higher achievement in nearly all measures after one year in the program. Cross-sectional analyses in Year 2 and Year 3 concurred with the results from the Year 1. Longitudinal analysis also proved to be an independent verification of the substantial impact of laptop use on student learning outcomes.Von James Cengiz Gulek, Hakan Demirtas im Text Learning With Technology: The Impact of Laptop Use on Student Achievement (2005)
