Effects of a Statewide Scale-up of Mathematics Education Technology Education technology can support mathematics teachers in effectively teaching many students with varying levels of mathematical skills and motivation in their classrooms. However, despite the recognized benefits, many teachers still do not use technology frequently for their teaching and struggle with successful integration of technology into their instruction. Through funding from the state legislature, over 200,000 K-12 students were given access to 11 mathematics educational technology products. We assessed student outcomes on the state SAGE assessment and surveyed teachers to understand the implementation successes and challenges. For several of the programs, students using the product at the recommended level showed greater proficiency on the state assessment than similar students in the state. In general, teachers were highly satisfied with the adaptive product features that provide individualized instruction and feedback as well as engage students. A majority of the teachers were not yet optimizing the value of these programs by using the real time monitoring data to inform their instruction. These findings have implications for work in schools and districts around personalized learning technology integration.
