Mark WarschauerThe value of laptops, iPads, and other technology in K-12 schools is heatedly debated. This presentation will review research on the topic and share lessons learned about the appropriate role of digital media in children's education.

Mark Warschauer is Professor and Associate Dean of Education at the University of California, Irvine and Director of the Digital Learning Lab. His research focuses on the relationship of technology use to learning processes and outcomes for diverse students in a wide range of contexts. He is the author or editor of ten books and 150 papers on the topic. In higher education, his team is looking at instructional practices in STEM lecture courses, the impact of virtual learning on student achievement, the learning processes and outcomes in Massively Open Online Courses (MOOCs), and the impact on students of multi-tasking with digital media. In K-12 education, his team is developing and studying cloud-based tools for writing, exploring digital scaffolding for reading, investigating one-to-one programs with iPads and Chromebooks, examining use of interactive mobile robots for virtual inclusion, and developing mobile apps for language learning. The DLL team is also exploring new approaches to data mining, machine learning, and learning analytics to analyze the learning and educational data that result from use of new digital tools.
