    Kindergarten Literacy Scores Improved by iPad Use in New Research Study



    The Loopís Jim Dalrymple writes today about the success of a new research study at a kindergarten in Auburn, Maine, which shows that kindergartner students who use iPads get higher scores on literacy tests than their classmates who donít use an iPad. Mike Muir, Auburn School Departmentís Multiple Pathways Leader, spoke to Dalrymple about the program, saying:



    ďThe objective has to be learning, not just getting the technology out there. We are paying attention to app selection and focused on continuous improvement Ė we arenít just handing equipment to teachers.Ē
    According to Dalrymple, the study randomly assigned half of the districtís 16 kindergarten classes iPads, which they were to use for nine weeks. 129 students used iPads, and 137 did not use iPads. Each of the 266 students were tested prior to and following the nine-week period, with the result being that those children using iPads outperformed those who werenít using iPads in every test that they took. Apparently teachers also found that pupils were much more motivated and engaged in lessons when they were using the iPad as well.

    Anyone have any idea what apps they are using at this school or any good learning apps for kids that you've tried?
