Instruction: Read the following passage and answer the questions.

With technology having already been widely adopted in early childhood classrooms, an increasing number of apps has been designed for iPads to facilitate children’s storytelling.  Researchers have accordingly begun to examine the effects of these resources. For instance, one research examined children’s interaction with a storytelling app when they generated stories with it. Researchers found that this practice boosted some children’s personal sense of accomplishment and improved their communication skills as they aim to reach a higher level at the next activity.
