The Impact of the E Pals Classroom Exchange Program
Skinner, Tisha

2007, Masters in Education, Marietta College, Education.
The E pals classroom exchange is a safe, monitored Email service connecting students from all around the world. The program promotes literacy, motivating students to write to other students their age in different parts of the world. This research will examine the impact of the E pals program on student literacy by focusing on the access to email, writing to real subjects, along with the increased motivation to write. The research will compare the E pals program with the more traditional approaches of increasing literacy in Middle schools today. It will also examine the benefits of using Email rather than the more common standard mail form of letter exchanging. An Independent T-test was run and the following are the results of the testing. The statistical test demonstrated that there was a significant difference in the change score from the pre and post tests of the students using the E pals program and those not using the program t (51) = 2.006, p = .048.
