Speakers at the International Society for Technology in Education conference on Tuesday told attendees about the ways they are using education technology to improve learning. In one North Carolina district, educators are using mobile devices to further math instruction, having students complete practice problems and other work on tablets. The Chicago school system also has distributed tablet computers to fifth-grade students. School leaders' advice to attendees was that such programs can be successful as long as they are accompanied by careful planning.
