National research shows positive impact of Promethean IWB on student achievement

Education Week’s Digital Education blog shared findings from the national study conducted by Dr. Robert Marzano, showing that “…that the incorporation of interactive whiteboards, accompanying software and hardware, and in-person and online professional development increased student achievement on teacher-designed tests across core academic subjects by an average of 16 percent.” 

According to the Digital Education blog post – Gene V. Glass, a senior researcher at the University of Colorado’s National Education Policy Center, said in an email, “One way of phrasing their findings is that a class employing the technology would gain 12 months’ achievement in a 9-month school year.”  For more information about the study, click here.
