As educators across Central Georgia and the nation look for ways to improve student achievement, some students at Macon State College in Macon got the chance to put their ideas to the test.  About 75 seniors in the college’s School of Education presented their findings Tuesday at the Action Research Gala, after researching topics in education, including how to use new technology in the classroom. Students Elizabeth Jones and Kristie Finch, who served as student-teachers at an elementary school in Warner Robins, taught fourth and fifth graders multiplication using computer games. They say after two weeks, the students improved their scores on a math test by nearly 20 percent.
