Abstract


This research was conducted to examine the role of IT (smart school implementation) in academic achievement of the primary school students of Bandar Khamir. The target statistical population included all the elementary students (5864, in total) of the mentioned county in the school year 2014-2015. Of this population, using multi-stage sampling, 362 students were selected whose grades for 5 percent of the subject matters natural sciences, mathematics, Farsi spelling, Farsi writing, and Farsi Reading were collected and analyzed. Half of the sample group had received training on the use of IT and smart schooling tools, while the other half kept using the traditional learning methods. The sample group was made up of 55.2 percent boys and 44.8 percent girls. Given that the mean scores of two independent groups were to be compared, student’s t-test was applied to test of the research hypotheses. All of the hypotheses were supported by the testing results, suggesting that mean scores of the students trained for the use of IT and smart learning tools were greater than the students who kept using the traditional learning methods.
