Triple E Level 2: Enhanced Learning
Technology can create opportunities for students to move beyond engagement in content, where the technology may simply be replacing a traditional method of instruction, but it is not actually doing anything different than the traditional method was doing. We call this the "value-added" aspect of technology. Value-added enhancement of learning through technology is when the tool is somehow aiding, assisting, scaffolding learning in a way that could not easily be done with traditional methods. This is the level where learning can become personalized and more relatable to the learner. This is when technology is really starting to change how learning occurs to make it more meaningful to the learner. Below are three questions that should be asked when measuring for enhancement of learning through technology tools.
Research to Support Enhanced Learning
The research below highlights the research that informs the Triple E component for enhancement.
Enhancement rarely occurs through applications that only use "drill and practice" methods
