In Harmony Public Schools, using online Homework systems, such as Mastering Physics, and Mastering Biology, helped us increase our AP scores significantly. On the other hand, another semi-online, semi-in class system "Accelerated Math" is used to increase one on one and small group interactions in 6-12 Math and High School Science classes. No technology tool is sufficient by itself to increase student achievement. The success or failure of using an online (technology) system depends on the following: 1- Adequate training of teachers with clear expectations 2- Training teachers on how to increase student buy-in by changing student attitude towards class-work and homework 3- Creating a cooperative learning environment in class 4- Using feedback mechanism that is in the online system to reach students who need extra help. In this presentation, some of the technology tools that were used by Harmony teachers will be shared along with best practices and lessons learned.
