Lauren Eutsler, assistant professor in UNT's College of Education, recently examined instances where pre-K through fifth-grade teachers used mobile technology, like tablets preloaded with apps, to improve students' literacy achievement. She identified gains in several areas, including increased comprehension for bilingual students who combined reading digital books with apps that provide recording and listening features. The study found strategies for teachers to use that can make the most out of using technology remotely and at home to create student-centered learning.
