Technology, Affective Characteristics, and Mathematics in Elementary and Middle School Students
Examine existing literature to explore affective characteristics and achievement when using technology in mathematics for elementary and middle school students.
The purpose of this three year project was to examine the existing literature to investigate the outcomes of affective characteristics and achievement when using technology in mathematics for elementary and middle school students. Two primary studies are included in this research (1) a comprehensive literature review and (2) a meta-analysis to address our primary research questions. The initial electronic database search resulted in 12,922 articles. After narrowing down the search to meet our inclusion criteria roughly 80 articles remained across both studies. A third study is underway to examine additional student constructs including metacognition, motivation, and engagement.
