Technologies available for the classroom range from interactive whiteboards to 3D instruction. Given the state of 3D for classrooms in its use of specialized goggles (Spencer & Lennex, 2011), projectors (TI instruments), and scarcity of published research (Elliot & Mikulas, 2011), its value as a teaching tool is being weighed by educators. In this study, apps for mobile computing (laptops) and Internet tools (iPads) were researched. Both the literature review and the classroom research have shown that students retained content knowledge and possibly improved overall achievement.
