As part of my Masters program, I focused my research on how to use assistive technologies, primary tablets, to help struggling readers improve comprehension.
First, the attached filed includes summaries for about fifteen research-based studies that have taken place with the goal of improving comprehension with some type of assistive technology. This resource is compiled in the form of an annotated bibliography. Most of the articles mentioned are available through major databases like JSTOR.
The paper below details how to integrate E-Readers into a literacy classroom using a traditional action research model.
Finally, below is a PPT that I’ve produced based on how I would go about implementing the use of E-Readers in a literacy classroom to help students improve reading comprehension. The PPT has audio embedded in it.
