Abstract

The traditional learning environment and electronic learning environment are quickly being blended into some curriculum's at the elementary level. Using the qualitative comparison study this paper analyzed what type of environment was most effective for an elementary student. Three students within a second grade classroom were chosen to be observed based on current levels of performances in the areas of English – Language Arts and Mathematics. Student behavior, engagement, and academic success were all concepts that were analyzed. Parent teacher conference notes were analyzed to determine if the electronic learning program was suitable for usage outside of school hours.
