Current research about the effectiveness of technology has emphasized higher education and professional development, because it suggests that specific uses of technology can improve K-12 student outcomes. However, the findings are basic, and not specific about student-centered learning, even though technology can support and diagnose, also address individual student needs (Moeller & Reitzes 2011, p.5).
