iPadAccording to this research done by Concordia University, the answer is yes. The other interesting information discussed in the article is that iPads can enhance digital students’ capacity to perform better in exams. The NCRL site also has a lot of information about how technology can improve learning and it is set out in a systematic way. The newest data is 2005 and we have come a long way since then so there is room to look at this information and discuss it in the light of our current practice. I really think we are at the stage where we can look more critically and systematically at what we are doing because we are past the teething and implementation of technology stages. So many schools and teachers now have a comfort zone with what they are now doing and so could look at things in deeper way to see how technology influences student achievement and effective learning.
