La tecnología móvil puede ayudar a personalizar la enseñanza y mejorar las habilidades de aprendizaje genéricas y específicas de estudiantes con necesidades educativas especiales. Este estudio examina los efectos de una estrategia de intervención tecnológica en las habilidades de atención/concentración y ortografía. Los participantes fueron estudiantes con necesidades educativas permanentes y transitorias que asisten a escuelas secundarias en Chile. Se adoptó un diseño experimental pretest-postest con grupo control. Participaron 73 estudiantes, bajo tres condiciones: a) grupo de control, con una estrategia basada en guía impresa y sin uso de tecnología, b) grupo experimental, con una estrategia basada en computador, y c) grupo experimental, con una estrategia basada en  iPad. Se utilizó un análisis de la varianza para comparar las medias de los tres grupos. Los resultados muestran que la estrategia basada en iPad obtuvo diferencias significativas en comparación con las otras condiciones. Se concluye que la tecnología móvil puede mejorar tanto las habilidades genéricas de atención/concentración como las específicas de ortografía en estudiantes con necesidades educativas especiales.
