This study examines how teaching and learning are different based on classroom technology resources available to K-12 teachers and students. Objectives of the study are to: richly describe how secondary teachers are using technology to support student learning of English, mathematics, science and social studies; determine if uses of technology align with ISTE teacher standards; explore teacher motives for technology uses and determine whether these motives are associated with content areas and/or technology resources available; observe learning contexts and how these vary based on the technology resources available to teachers and students (COT vs. 1:1): and determine if differences in teacher uses of technology within core subject areas are associated with differences in student achievement and motivation.
