American Journal of Education and Practice <p>The American Journal of Education and Practice (AJEP) is a journal that aims to advance the field of education and practice by publishing high-quality research and best practices. AJEP is an open access journal, which means that anyone can access and read its articles for free. AJEP publishes original research articles, reviews, and short communications that cover various aspects of education and practice, such as teaching and learning, leadership and management, psychology and counseling, technology and innovation, assessment and evaluation, and policy and reform. AJEP welcomes submissions from scholars, practitioners, and policy makers from different disciplines, backgrounds, and regions. AJEP has a rigorous peer review process that ensures the validity and reliability of the published papers. The peer review process takes about 2-3 months from the submission to the final decision. The reviewers are experts in their respective fields and provide constructive feedback and suggestions to the authors. AJEP is indexed by several reputable platforms, such as Research Gate, Google Scholar, EBSCOhost, Scilit, and Crossref (DOI). These platforms enhance the visibility and accessibility of the journal and its articles to a global audience. AJEP has a distinguished editorial board that consists of eminent scholars and practitioners from different countries and regions. The editorial board members are responsible for overseeing the editorial process, ensuring the ethical standards, and promoting the journal to their networks and communities.</p> AJPO Journals Limited en-US American Journal of Education and Practice 2520-3991 <p>Authors retain copyright and grant the journal right of first publication with the work simultaneously licensed under a <a href="">Creative Commons Attribution (CC-BY) 4.0 License</a> that allows others to share the work with an acknowledgment of the work’s authorship and initial publication in this journal.</p> Impact of Technology Integration on Math Achievement in Middle School Classrooms in India <p><strong>Purpose:</strong> The aim of the study was to assess the impact of technology integration on math achievement in middle school classrooms in India.</p> <p><strong>Methodology:</strong> This study adopted a desk methodology. A desk study research design is commonly known as secondary data collection. This is basically collecting data from existing resources preferably because of its low cost advantage as compared to a field research. Our current study looked into already published studies and reports as the data was easily accessed through online journals and libraries.</p> <p><strong>Findings:</strong> The study revealed that the incorporation of technology, such as interactive software and educational applications, positively influences students' engagement and motivation in learning mathematics. This increased engagement leads to enhanced conceptual understanding and problem-solving skills among students. Additionally, technology integration facilitates personalized learning experiences, allowing students to progress at their own pace and receive immediate feedback, which contributes to improved academic performance. Moreover, the study suggests that teachers play a crucial role in mediating the effectiveness of technology integration by effectively integrating it into their instructional practices and providing necessary support to students.</p> <p><strong>Implications to Theory, Practice and Policy:</strong>&nbsp; Cognitive load theory, constructivist learning theory and technology acceptance model may be used to anchor future studies on assessing the impact of technology integration on math achievement in middle school classrooms in India. Educators should be encouraged to adopt evidence-based practices that leverage educational technology to enhance math instruction in middle school classrooms. Policymakers play a pivotal role in shaping the educational landscape and allocating resources to support technology integration initiatives in middle school mathematics education.</p> Aarar Patel Copyright (c) 2024 Aarar Patel 2024-04-07 2024-04-07 8 3 1 12 10.47672/ajep.1904
