  3. 3. Research• Handheld devices can leverage the power of technology to enable all students to succeed (Gulchak, 2008).• There is a direct correlation between the amount of student learning and personal development and the student involvement in the program (Astin, 1985).• Teachers in this generation are more aware of the motivational benefits from using technology in special education (Rao, Dowrick, Yuen, & Boisvert, 2009).• Due to the ubiquitous adoption of mobile devices in our society, mobile technology offers a contextual and authentic medium for learning (Fisher & Baird, 2007).
  4. 4. Research ((continued)• In a study done in a graduate level History class, Vess (2006) found that the use of iPod created a learner- centered environment, created continuous engagement, and active learning along with a strong sense of community.• Video iPod was found to be an effective instructional tool in increasing independent responding of an individual with developmental disabilities in a community based employment setting. This also led to decrease in outside prompting (Laarhoven et al. 2009).• iPods were used with 8th grade literature classes. It was found that students developed deeper understanding of the concepts taught, were actively engaged and happy (Bauleke, & Herrmann, 2010). Bonnet & Agrawal, 2011
