Submission + - Major study questions value of school software

Geekbot writes: A major research study has found that educational software used in schools did not lead to any significant gains in test scores. This study is being criticized for several things. Most of all it is being criticized because the EdTech community feels that there was little follow up training and support. Maybe the most important part of the study is that it shows that technology in schools might be failing because of a lack of teacher training and support. A link to the full report and executive study is here http://ies.ed.gov/ncee/pubs/20074005/ . A summary from eschoolnews is here http://www.eschoolnews.com/news/showStoryRSS.cfm?A rticleID=7011&page=3 And a summary of SAII objections are here http://www.eschoolnews.com/news/showStoryts.cfm?Ar ticleID=7010
