Researchers tend to study tools, activities, and learning outcomes as interacting parts of the same equation. By considering these elements together, we can keep a careful eye on how we are supporting students and enhancing learning in our classrooms.

Dive into the research and apply these lessons to your own practice: identify the learning that you hope to support, and use the tools that deepen those activities.
