Study: iPads in classroom boost literacy test scores

SAN FRANCISCO

The study was conducted by a school district in Maine. The school district gave iPads to half of its 16 kindergarten classes.

Students with the devices scored better on every measure of literacy, especially hearing and recording sounds.

The results of the study should be viewed with caution, according to one Stanford professor, who says that the novelty of the iPad as a teaching tool is likely to wear off.
