Time To Know is an environment designed to increase learning and academic engagement as well as enhance teachers’ knowledge of constructivist teaching methods in mathematics and Language Arts. Rockman et al, an independent research, evaluation, and consulting firm, developed an extensive evaluation study to assess the overall effect of the Time To Know technology-based Mathematics and English Language Arts (ELA) environment on teaching and learning processes and academic outcomes. The subjects were 59 4th grade students, who learned in Time To Know one-to-one laptop learning environment in Dallas and 68 4th grade students in traditional settings. Findings indicated that learning in Time To Know environment significantly enhanced students Mathematics and ELA achievements and contributed to development of Mathematics reasoning skills. Overall, the study showed that intertwining digital content that is aligned with state content standards, constructivist-oriented learning, and teacher-led platform, enables a significant empowerment of teaching and learning processes.
