Abstract:

This report reviews the mathematics program of Miami-Dade public schools in grades 5 through 8 and provides recommendations about how technology might be used to improve learning opportunities for students. The main conclusion of the study and the conceptual foundation for all the conclusions and recommendations is that technology use must be undertaken as part of and within the context of systemic reform. The paper is divided into four sections. The first section reviews the literature to discern what research and best practices suggest are important factors in high-quality mathematics programs. The second section of the paper is concerned with how well Miami-Dade schools are meeting the middle school mathematical goals they have set for themselves. The third section examines technology research, with an emphasis on summarizing very recent studies focused on the use of technology to increase student learning. In the fourth section, recommendations are made that might help Miami-Dade Public Schools incorporate cost-effective interventions. (Contains an annotated list of Internet resources and 68 references.) (Mm).
