Technology Impacts on Teaching Third Grade Math Using iPads
by Jimerson, Diont'e Lashaun, Ed.D., Northcentral University, 2018, 238; 10980258
Abstract (Summary)

This research study focused on how technology-based tools have changed the 21st century education arena in elementary school mathematics classes. The research highlighted the inner city schools where many students in the class are achieving below state standards set for third grade level. The research question asked to what extent do students have a higher level of engagement in math classes in which iPads and other technologies are used? Technology continued to advance in 21st century classrooms where students are daily participants in teaching and learning with acquired experience using technology tools to accelerate their learning experience. Children are technology users with a passion for texting, web surfing, playing interactive games, social media, and more. The research methodology was data collection of achievement levels, using a quantitative method. The quantitative process for the research project supplemented the greater understanding of student achievement growth from integrated iPads in a third-grade math class in inner city schools in Chicago. The test was completed by the students, and the scores were automatically updated on the public website. The students had two hours to complete the test, and the students’ information was kept confidential. The students that were taught using technology outscored the students that were not taught using technology. The recommendation was to implement technology in all schools and create a challenging curriculum. The final recommendation for teaching with technology included the beneficial factors.
