More than 200 ed-tech companies exhibited at this year’s T+L²l;; Conference. Here’s a sampling of news from the exhibitors offering research information and services:
The nonprofit Corporation for Public Broadcasting used T+L² to disseminate the results of a recent report called “Television Goes to School: The Impact of Video on Student Learning in Formal Education.” The report focuses on the relationship of television to learning and gives examples from current research that show the positive effects of television on student achievement. The report also provides a list of recommendations intended to help teachers integrate effective video-based learning applications into to classroom. Fueled by the research-based provisions of the federal No Child Left Behind Act, the report calls for more scientific evidence to support the continued use of video-based instruction in America’s schools.
Market Data Retrieval (MDR) recently released its “Technology in Education 2004” report, which keeps educators and vendors up to date on K-12 technology trends and provides details on district spending.
