Tablet-based Learning for Foundational Literacy and Math: An 8-month RCT in MalawiLevesque, Karen, Bardack, Sarah, & Chigeda, Antonie - 2020
Our 8-month randomized controlled trial (RCT) in government primary schools in Malawi shows significant positive effects for learners in overall literacy and in key early math skills, with similarly positive results for both girls and boys.
Interactive apps prevent gender discrepancies in early-grade mathematics in a low-income country in sub-Sahara AfricaPitchford, N. J., Chigeda, A., & Hubber, P. J. - 2019 - Developmental Science, 22(5), e12864
Globally, gender differences are reported in the early acquisition of reading and mathematics as girls tend to outperform boys in reading, whereas boys tend to outperform girls in mathematics. This can have long-term impact resulting in an under-representation of girls in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics subjects. Recent research suggests that sociocultural factors account for differences across genders in the acquisition of these foundational skills. In this study, we...

Interactive Apps Promote Learning of Basic Mathematics in Children With Special Educational Needs and DisabilitiesPitchford, N. J., Kamchedzera, E., Hubber, P. J., & Chigeda, A. L. - 2018 - Frontiers in Psychology, 9
Interactive apps delivered on touch-screen tablets can be effective at supporting the acquisition of basic skills in mainstream primary school children. This technology may also be beneficial for children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) as it can promote high levels of engagement with the learning task and an inclusive learning environment. However, few studies have measured extent of learning for SEND pupils when using interactive apps, so it has yet to be determined...
