How Pocket PCs Affect Reading Comprehension
Division:Earth & Environmental Sciences / None
City:Bothwell, ON
School:Good Shepherd C.S.
Abstract:In my project “How Do Pocket PCs Affect Reading Comprehension?” I tested if Pocket PCs affected learning in a classroom verses reading on paper. I tested a classroom using Pocket PCs by having them read three different stories; at their reading level on three different days then they answered questions. I reached the conclusion that Pocket PCs do have a positive affect on reading comprehension.
