A thorough meta-analysis about using technology to learn mathematics has been published by the Center for Research and Reform in Education at John Hopkins University in the US and is available from the Best Evidence Encyclopedia. The study, The Effectiveness of Educational Technology Applications for Enhancing Mathematics Achievement in K-12 Classrooms: A Meta-Analysis is comprehensive and detailed. The research findings contain no surprises and confirm what is already known by stating that, ‘The majority of reviews concluded that there were positive effects of educational technology on mathematics achievement’ (p. 3).

As always, a sober analysis of peoples thoughts and voting patterns is illuminating - lot of Liberal voters out there in favour of redistribution of wealth.

What with so many open-ended internet media projects out there, I admire any that come to a close.
