The purpose of this research is to analyze the relationship between learning technologies and affect, particularly a students’ grit, before and after using MathSpring. This study also analyzes cross-cultural differences in grit between an individualistic culture and a collectivist culture. The United States dataset consisted of students from different schools in Massachusetts. This study was conducted in three Argentine middle schools to see if grit was affected over a 5 week period. Grit was affected as students had a higher post test score than their pretest score. The comparison between students from the United States and from Argentina after using the MathSpring software revealed that Argentina students had a higher post test grit than United States students.
