A single page to answer “will ICT help kids learn?”

Well, almost. These pages from CARET probably answer most of the questions:

How can technology influence student academic performance?
How can technology develop higher order thinking and problem solving?
How can technology improve student motivation, attitude, and interest in learning?
How can technology help to prepare students for the workforce?
How can technology address the needs of low performing, at-risk, and learning handicapped students?
