Can EdTech help address issues related to elementary achievement gaps in your classroom? Educational technology tools used strategically can alter how students interact with classroom resources. In elementary classrooms, the integration of digital resources can vary greatly. They might be used with a whole group or small groups of students, or with individual students.
The National Center for Education Statistics describes the achievement gap as follows:
“Achievement gaps occur when one group of students (such as, students grouped by race/ethnicity, gender) outperforms another group and the difference in average scores for the two groups is statistically significant (that is, larger than the margin of error).”
