The purpose of this literature review is to examine technology-enriched learning environments in order to implement proper and effective use – changing the classroom as we know it. The review provides a definition and descriptions of technology-enriched learning environments, research based evidence of how they affect-teachers and students, and three key barriers preventing institutionalization of technology-enriched learning environments. Key search terms include technology-enriched learning environments, academic achievement, curriculum, teacher role, technology infusion, and professional development.
This review concludes that with rapid developments and implementations of technology into the educational setting, educators, administrators and technology leaders need to be provided with a system of professional development and support. A constructivist pedagogy must also be present to effectively implement a technology-enriched learning environment that supports teacher and student achievement and development.
