Master of Education (MEd)
This study is done to try and answer the question of whether or not the integration of technology throughout a first grade curriculum will help student’s reading comprehension by broadening their experiences? Will technology help student’s reflection skills? Will it help them with the “big idea” of a story? Do virtual field trips help students go beyond that which is concrete to making connections to real world events? The following study shows support in the hypothesis that technology will help students reading levels climb in comprehension specifically in the areas of reflection and making connections.
