Given the growth of technology ending in the emergence of smart schools in educational systems, the study improvement and extension of innovative teaching methods are of great importance. Thus, this paper studies the effect of doing e-homework on learning of learners with field dependent and independent learning styles in a semi-experimental design with pre-test and post-test, which is the purpose of this paper. The sample of this paper consists of 76 students from vocational schools of Tehran 15th District, who are non-randomly assigned (in two groups of 38 as experimental and control groups). This study examined the performance of both groups in one subject before and after training through pre-test and post-test using a researcher-made test. To determine the cognitive style, students are asked to respond to Witkin Group Embedded Figures Test (GEFT). Both groups are exposed to the same education with the difference that the students of the experimental group - in contrast to the control group - did their homework electronically. As a result, statistical analysis of data - performed using the mean differences and covariance analysis - showed that doing the homework electronically enhanced learning of field independent learners more than the ones field dependent learning style.
