Abstract: Technology Enhanced Elementary Math and Science (TEEMSS2), has the goal of bringing the power of information and communication technology to science education in grades 3--8, by creating and disseminating valuable, proven, and easily implemented technology-based science learning materials and associated teacher professional development. The project has selected age-appropriate, standards-based content for which technology offers real advantages. The learning strategy is based on student investigations of real phenomena using sensors and of virtual environments based on computer models. The new materials take advantage of computers, sensors, handhelds, and electronic networking to more effectively teach students and give them deeper insights into the process of science inquiry. This paper reports on the year 1 formative evaluation of TEEMSS2, which showed both quantitative and qualitative evidence of student learning when teachers implemented the materials in their classrooms.
