The purpose of the proposed study was to investigate the impact of mobile device practice on the attention and accuracy of student’s use of math concepts, specifically, telling time. A single subject, alternating treatment design was used to compare mobile device practice to paper & pencil practice in four 3rd grade male students. In accordance with recommendations from the What Works Clearinghouse: Single-Case Design Technical Documentation (Kratochwill, Hitchcock, Horner, Levin, Odom, Rindskopf, & Shadish, 2010), each treatment condition had 5 data points (mobile device practice and paper & pencil practice).
