 Using Alternative Lenses to Examine Effective Teachers' Use of Technology
with Low-Performing
by Julie A. Edmunds
 Much of the literature on technology use with low-performing students is
limited and often contradictory. This is partially because most research has
looked at technology use through a single lens: that of the technology
itself. Looking at technology use through multiple lenses, including
teachers' instructional practices, can help resolve some of the
contradictions. This study used a collective case study approach to examine
the use of technology by elementary school teachers who were effective at
improving the achievement of their low-performing students. Analysis of the
data found that these teachers used technology in a balanced way that was
continuous with their general instructional practices. Their use of
technology reflected nine primary roles: to target instruction more
effectively; to incorporate a variety of strategies; to support
teacher-guided instruction; to increase student involvement in instruction;
to facilitate remediation and reinforcement; to promote adva nced thinking
strategies; to increase access to resources; to motivate students; and to
meet the needs of the whole child.
