iPad/iPod Research
  • In its infancy, because of the relative new technology. Some case studies available and positive subjective articles.
  • Specific applications on the iPad/iPod have basis in research such as the Accelerated Reader application based on the widely used AR programs in schools

Accelerated Reader is a well researched reading instruction

program. An iPad or iPod is only the tool that provides access

available in a computer lab. Research article can be accessed

from the following site: http://www.renlearn.com/ar/research.aspx

Behavior Tracking
  • iPod and iPad can be used by instructors to track time intervals, video model, schedule, or self assess.
  • Used as a self assessment tool in the classroom to track behavior. For example,
    • “findings of this study indicate that using an iPod Touch to deliver video-based instruction within the classroom setting is not only effective, but might also be an easier and more practical means of delivery than the less portable methods used previously.” (Blood et. al., 2011, p.1)
