The purpose of my research is to compare the use of technology in an elementary class to a class whose instruction is limited to traditional methods. Investigating the achievement of the students, the attention of the students and the comprehension of students will be a major part of my study. My purpose will be to see if students benefit from technology and if there is an improvement, to what degree. I will be reviewing peer-reviewed articles to see what is published about the use of technology and what the benefits of using technology in a classroom are. This review will be in a form of a literature review. From the information from my literature review and research, I will hopefully receive a solid conclusion about the integration of technology.
