With Just One iPad, Teachers Improve Classroom Lessons Contact: Katie Neal,, (336) 758-6141 Newswise — Winston-Salem, NC, Jan. 4, 2012 - While K-12 schools around the country search for funding to provide iPads to every student, an education researcher in North Carolina has found that even a single iPad can make a huge difference in the classroom. The results of her experience with student teachers at Wake Forest University appear in the December/January issue of Learning & Leading With Technology, the magazine of the International Society for Technology in Education. “Because they’re truly part of the digital generation, our pre-service teachers and the K-12 students they teach have a natural aptitude for tablet devices,” said Kristin Redington Bennett, an Assistant Professor of Education at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, N.C. Though iPads can cost more than $500 with 3G access and a budget for apps, Bennett said, “Don’t discount the device because of its price. Comment/Share

E-readers prove easy on the eye for some dyslexics Using an e-reader may help some dyslexic students understand what they read, researchers at Harvard University argue. In a paper published in the journal PLOS One, the authors found that a group of dyslexic teenagers showed greater reading comprehension when using an iPod Touch e-reader than when asked to read from paper. The e-reader was formatted to display around nine lines of text on the screen at a time, with only two or three words in each line, leaving fewer visual distractions. The authors therefore concluded that this improvement is due to the reduced demands on visual attention when reading from the iPod. The dominant theoretical explanation for dyslexia involves phonological processing, or understanding the sound structure of speech. In normal reading, there is a sensitive and highly efficient link between eye movement and understanding. In skilled reading, this process is so automatic we hardly notice it. However, the study shows this is not the full explanation.
