Abstract: Schools have marched into the digital age–but have classroom management and school discipline followed suit? Analyzing the content and methodologies of over two decades of empirical research in ERIC, this systematic literature review describes how the field has conceived of technology’s roles in classroom management and school discipline. These roles include training teachers, supporting educators’ day-to-day practices, and promoting self-discipline or self-regulation among students. A variety of tools were applied, including but not limited to videos, 3D simulations, and web-based apps. Strengths and limitations of this body of scholarship are discussed, including suggestions for keeping pace with emerging practices.
