    3. Statement of the Problem • Pre-service teachers are learning technological tools and concepts during their education. However, when it comes time to implement this knowledge there is a lack of ability of bringing this theory to reality. With an increase of proper use of technology in the classroom, perhaps student participation and active engagement will also increase.

    4. Review of the Literature

    5. Pros • “Pierson defined technology integration as teachers utilizing content and technological and pedagogical expertise effectively for the benefit of student’s learning.” Woodbridge, Techlearning.com

    6. “Nicaise and Barnes compared technology to a tool that they used to promote a student centered, active learning environment”- Rachel Karchmer

    7. Cons “Connecting media literacy to the state standards for subject areas is currently a major challenge of the media literacy movement” - Elizabeth Thoman

    8. “Teachers are not generally prepared to use these new technologies of literacies or to teach children how to use them effectively” - Rachel Karchmer

    9. Theorists • Lev Voygotsky • More knowledgeable Other • Piaget • Developmental Theory • Howard Gardner • 8 Multiple Intelligences

    10. Current Practices • Internet • Smart Board • Electronic Books

    11. Statement of the Hypothesis • Hr1: Integrating technology in the literacy curriculum several times a week over a six-week period to 8 special needs students in Private School X on Long Island, New York will increase students interest in literacy and reading.

    12. Method • Participants • 8 Special Needs Students • Instruments • Consent forms • Pre and post surveys • Demographic survey • Design • Single group pretest post test design, OXO • Threats to internal validity: History, Maturation, Instrumentation • Threats to External Validity: Generalizable conditions • Procedure

    13. Results Graph 1 is a bar graph representation of the pre survey question number four “I like using computers to read.”

    14. Graph two is a bar graph representation of the post survey question number four, “I like using computers to read”.

    15. The correlation of between participants liking to use acomputer to read and how often they read at home is rXY= .23. Although positive, it is not a strong enough correlation to say that using a computer effects how much a person likes to read.

    16. For this correlation rXY=0. There is no correlation between how many computers are in the participants’ homes and liking to read using computers

    17. Discussion • The results of this study do not support the original hypothesis that integrating technology in the literacy curriculum will increase students’ interest in reading and literacy. • “Technology promotes literacy education” (Kaya et al, 2010). However, in this situation the technology did not promote education. The participants were interested and asked for more technology, the teacher asked for websites for where she could find electronic books, however according to the surveys there was a not a strong enough correlation. • According to Means et al. (1993), and NCATE (1997) “There is research indicating that the use of new technologies in teaching and learning may improve student achievement” ( in Karchmer, 2001).

    18. Implications • This study had a very small amount of participants. Due to this, the results may not show what a larger sample would show. This study should be done again using a much larger sample size of special education, general education, and gifted and talented students. • Also, because the study only used special education students, the results do not show what the results would if there were higher functioning students involved. This would help generalize the results and get a wider variety of scores. By involving a more diverse sample, more technology could be implemented into the study and tests could be given to see if scores improved due to the intervention. • Further research is needed to test the effects of technology as an intervention in literacy. Although the students reacted well to the intervention, a longer period of time is needed by the researcher to conduct the study to test the effects on the sample. The study showed that the students like to read more after the intervention.
