Correia, A.-P., & Good, K. (2023). Exploring the relationships between student perceptions and educational technology utilization in higher education. Journal of Educational Technology Development and Exchange, 16(1), 92-107.
Abstract: This study examines the perceptions of educational technology use among college students at a small liberal arts university in the United States. Using institutional data analytics, 34,480 survey responses were analyzed to understand how students perceive the use of technology in the classroom and its relationship with teaching methods, progress on learning objectives, and course features. Descriptive and inferential statistical analyses were conducted, revealing a positive correlation between the use of educational technology and effective teaching methods, progress on learning objectives, and overall satisfaction with instructors and courses. However, important to note that the study is correlational in nature and cannot establish causality. Further research is needed to fully understand the impact of educational technology on teaching and learning in higher education, specifically the potential benefits of using technology to support collaboration among students
