  1. 1. There’s An App For That<br />Lauren Kravetz Bonnet, M.A., CCC-SLP<br />JugnuAgrawal, M.Ed., M.Sc.<br />
  2. 2. A Review of the Literature<br />Bonnet & Agrawal, 2011<br />
  3. 3. Research<br />Handheld devices can leverage the power of technology to enable all students to succeed (Gulchak, 2008). <br />There is a direct correlation between the amount of student learning and personal development and the student involvement in the program (Astin, 1985).<br />Teachers in this generation are more aware of the motivational benefits from using technology in special education (Rao, Dowrick, Yuen, & Boisvert, 2009). <br />Due to the ubiquitous adoption of mobile devices in our society, mobile technology offers a contextual and authentic medium for learning (Fisher & Baird, 2007). <br />
  4. 4. Research ((continued)<br />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. <br />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). <br />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). <br />Bonnet & Agrawal, 2011<br />
