Research/Career Interests: 

With millions invested in educational technology, what is its impact on student achievement and engagement? Rachael Schuetz, D.Ed, NBCT, investigates results from her sequential mixed-methods experiment, examining the effects of an iPad-based math intervention, as compared to a traditional paper-pencil approach, on second graders’ achievement and engagement in mathematics. Quantitative pre-post assessments include one engagement and two achievement measures. Qualitative teacher focus group data provides a complete view of student engagement. With finite intervention time and resources, school leaders need to know these exciting findings, in order to best improve student achievement and engagement in mathematics.
