Abstract: This action research project was based on implementing mobile learning technology into an elementary school classroom using the Reggio approach. This technology project was introduced to evaluate whether iPads could be incorporated into a Reggio school with young learners. The goal was to explore iPad use as a manner in which to heighten student achievement and engagement. In practice it was discovered that if supported sufficiently with professional development provision, infrastructure and funding, iPads could be used to allow students to demonstrate and guide their learning. In theory, the iPads compliment other components of the Reggio educational approach even when students are at a young age.
