Technology in Urban and Rural Schools: A Comparison Study Jesse Yentes & Martonia Gaskill For many decades rural education was not a hot topic in the research literature. Recently, rural education has received national attention in many aspects such as availability of technology and quality of teacher training to mention just a few. While many schools have been able to place fully operational computer labs and include mobile initiatives such as one to one computing to improve both teaching practices and student learning, not all schools are enjoying the same advancements or opportunities. The literature indicates classrooms that are rich in technology tools can provide students with greater opportunities for learning and engagement. The purpose of this study is to compare the availability and use of technology in teaching practices and learning activities in several rural and urban schools in Nebraska.
