This research study employs a second-order meta-analysis procedure to summarize 40 years of research activity addressing the question, does computer technology use affect student achievement in formal face-to-face classrooms as compared to classrooms that do not use technology? A study-level meta-analytic validation was also conducted for purposes of comparison. An extensive literature search and a systematic review process resulted in the inclusion of 25 meta-analyses with minimal overlap in… Expand
Technology-enhanced mathematics instruction: A second-order meta-analysis of 30 years of research
Abstract It is important to assess the cumulative effects of technology on student achievement captured in the last 30 years of technologyenhanced mathematics instruction. Synthesizing the thousandsExpand

An exploration of bias in meta-analysis: the case of technology integration research in higher education
TLDR
Two meta-analyses were found to have five out of seven stages where methodological flaws could potentially create biased results, and how much influence the methodological flaws exerted on the results of the second-order meta-analysis is determined. Expand

Technology’s effect on achievement in higher education: a Stage I meta-analysis of classroom applications
TLDR
A Stage I meta-analysis exploring the achievement effects of computer-based technology use in higher education classrooms (non-distance education) found low and medium use performing significantly higher than high use and cognitive support was greater than presentational and multiple uses. Expand
The Effect of Computers on Student Writing: A Meta-analysis of Studies from 1992 to 2002
TLDR
The results of the meta-analyses suggest that on average students who use computers when learning to write are not only more engaged and motivated in their writing, but they produce written work that is of greater length and higher quality. Expand

Evaluation of Evidence-Based Practices in Online Learning: A Meta-Analysis and Review of Online Learning Studies
TLDR
The meta-analysis of empirical studies of online learning found that, on average, students in online learning conditions performed better than those receiving face-to-face instruction, and suggests that the positive effects associated with blended learning should not be attributed to the media, per se.
