Abstract

This report summarises the findings of the project Exploring the Pedagogical Applications of Mobile Technologies for Teaching Literacy. Conducted in 2011-2012, the project explored the use of mobile
handheld technologies in the teaching of literacy, both in the English learning area and across the curriculum, in Western Australian independent schools. While the project was open to any and all
mobile devices, it quickly became apparent that the schools studied were using two mobile devices to the exclusion of almost all others. These were Apple’s iPad, with Apple’s iPod Touch running a distant second. As a result, the project focused almost entirely on these particular devices. It was carried out on behalf of the Association of Independent Schools of Western Australia (AISWA) by a research team from the Graduate School of Education at The University of Western Australia (UWA), with the collaboration
of AISWA staff.
