This paper presents successes and challenges of an iPad digital storytelling project in an early learning environment. The focus of the implementation was on the incorporation of digital storytelling activities supported by iPad technology into...
Implementing iPads in a reggio classroom: Digital storytelling to document student learning on a teacher’s budget
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2013 (Jun 24, 2013) pp. 1703–1707
This action research project was based on implementing mobile learning technology into an elementary school classroom using the Reggio approach. This technology project was introduced to evaluate whether iPads could be incorporated into a Reggio...
Cognition and Instruction Vol. 30, No. 4 (2012) pp. 435–470
A 9-month training experiment evaluated whether computer-assisted discovery learning of arithmetic regularities can facilitate kindergartners' fluency with the easiest sums. After a pretest, kindergartners with at least one risk factor (n = 28) were ...
Can Computer-Assisted Discovery Learning Foster First Graders' Fluency with the Most Basic Addition Combinations?
American Educational Research Journal Vol. 50, No. 3 (June 2013) pp. 533–573
In a 9-month training experiment, 64 first graders with a risk factor were randomly assigned to computer-assisted structured discovery of the add-1 rule (e.g., the sum of 7 + 1 is the number after "seven" when we count), unstructured discovery...
Fostering First Graders' Fluency with Basic Subtraction and Larger Addition Combinations via Computer-Assisted Instruction
Cognition and Instruction Vol. 32, No. 2 (2014) pp. 159–197
Achieving fluency with basic subtraction and add-with-8 or -9 combinations is difficult for primary grade children. A 9-month training experiment entailed evaluating the efficacy of software designed to promote such fluency via guided learning of...
