The purpose of this study was to determine whether technology would have a bigger impact on increasing at-risk students’ ability to identify and retain sight words versus the use of traditional flash cards. The measurement tool was the set of questions asked to the participants, seeing if they could correctly identify sight words with and without technology. This study involved use of a pretest and posttest, along with an interactive SMART Board and flash cards containing twenty sight words from the kindergarten Wonders sight word list. Achievement of sight word retention was evident during posttest scores for the participants after conducting this study. These findings suggest that the use of technology can be beneficial for students, although due to the small sample size of participants, further research is recommended.
