Smart phones improving math scores | math, project, students – News – Jacksonville Daily News
Lots of research starting to come in that smartphones make great study helpers and curricular delivery tools. This from the Jacksonville daily news:
“Onslow County students using smart phones in math courses not only outperformed
their peers in math but also went on to take additional math courses.
A Project K-Nect Evaluation Report, prepared by Project Tomorrow for Digital
Millennial Consulting, noted that Onslow County Project K-Nect students —
including students at Southwest and Dixon high schools — were more likely to
achieve proficiency in algebra and algebra II than other students in their
school district or state in the 2008-09 school year. Numbers for the 2009-10
school year will be released later this year.”
