Evans, Michael A.; Gracanin, Denis
Journal of Educational Technology, v5 n4 p38-44 Jan-Mar 2009
This article provides an overview to a collaborative knowledge building project using iPod Touches in elementary and secondary language arts and mathematics classrooms, working with 4 teachers and over 80 students. The interactive technologies for embodied Learning in Reading and Mathematics (iteL*RM) project intends to facilitate student exploration of standards-based topics using wireless mobile technologies with instructional multimedia and communication software. Learning opportunities incorporate the same technologies and learning strategies popularized by video games, personal broadcasting, and Web 2.0. The goal of the initiative is to help children develop appropriate thinking strategies and sufficient practice to improve fundamental knowledge in target areas and increase problem-solving skills using a range of emerging technologies for communication and computing.
