Abstract—Technological integration in learning and education is an inevitable part of the ever-changing technological world. Leveraging technology is an essential part of every learning mode. While digital technology is increasing common in schools and classrooms, finding ways to improve its impact on student learning remains a challenge for researchers and practitioners. The purpose of the study is to explore and highlight recent key literature addressing the problem of how to most effectively integrate digital technology into educational setting. Because of our inclusion criteria, forty-three key studies were identified with focus on four types of integrated digital learning such as electronic learning, mobile learning, digital learning and ubiquitous learning. The study further explores that the major technology associated delivery modes are lectures, tutorials and laboratory work. Incorporating technology in the teaching-learning process can be an effective way to develop the learners and educators for better learning and education outcomes. Our review of these studies reveals a consensus that particular strategies can promote significant improvement in student learning. We examine these arguments in hopes of offering educators and policy makers a new lens for educational effectiveness.

Index Terms—Leverage, electronic learning, digital learning, mobile learning, ubiquitous learning.
