Research on video and technology in the classroom
Student engagement in the classroom is an important part of any educational setting, but in practice can be a struggle for many students. The use of technology is a key factor in future access to education. The study aimed to explore the effects of technology on engagement and language achievement by using student-created video lessons, and observe the impact on English only (EO) students and English Learners (EL). Although observations suggested student engagement increased during the treatment, qualitative data collected showed that students’ perception of their engagement was mixed. Quantitative data revealed a slight increase in writing conventions. No significant difference between writing convention scores of EOs and ELs was found in this study. Implications are not conclusive as to the benefits of technology in this study.
