Research Report: The Wireless Writing Program 2004-2005 Prepared for: Peach River North (SD 60), Fort St. John, British Columbia, Canada

This second investigation of teachers and students at the Eastern Townships School Board had eight research objectives. It aimed to determine, according to the perceptions of the teachers and students, the impacts of information and communication technologies (ICT) on students’: (1) writing skills, (2) creativity, (3) communication and cooperation, (4) effective work methods, and (5) capacity to exercise critical judgment. Another aim was to identify the main (6) benefits and (7) challenges of regular use of technologies in the classroom, as well as (8) the equipment and access available to teachers and students at the school board. In all, 2,712 students (from grades 3 to 11) and 389 teachers participated in this questionnaire survey.

The Critical Skills model of instruction builds powerful lessons in classrooms ranging from pre-K to post-graduate. The model combines experiential learning, problem based learning, and rigorous high standards within an intentionally created collaborative learning community, creating the classrooms that many educators imagine, but can’t quite put together. It is the “how” in answer to the “what” of powerful classroom practice. And it was created, continues to be created, by practicing classroom teachers.

This interim report serves as an overview and introduction to the Year 3 Berkshire Wireless Learning Initiative student results. Currently, the Boston College research team is analyzing three years of teacher and student survey data collected across five 1:1 laptop settings and two comparison sites where 1:1 technology did not exist. In addition, we are exploring the different uses of student and teacher technology use with measures of student achievement. The final report will be issued on or before March 31, 2009.
