Technology-Integrated Curriculum and Students' Academic Performance


Technology is shaping our world persistently and swiftly every day.   Does the use of technology improve teaching and learning as well as the overall quality of education at schools?  To what extent are technology-integrated curricula in an elementary school correlated with students’ academic performance on statewide achievement tests?  To what extent are technology-integrated curricula in an elementary school correlated with students’ computer literacy skills?  The aim of this chapter was to identify whether a relationship exists between technology-integrated curriculum and students’ academic performance on statewide achievement tests as well as their computer skills in an elemental school in Alabama.  Data were collected through a survey questionnaire and archival data.  The participants were 113 fifth grade elementary school students.  Results from the study and recommendations for school administrators, teachers, and students are provided.
