Abstract

The classroom computer is no longer confined to a box on the desk. Mobile handheld computing devices have evolved into powerful and affordable learning tools. Handheld technologies are changing the way people access and work with information. The use of Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs or handhelds) has been an evolving part of the business world for more than 15 years and the implementation of these devices in higher education has often followed that business model. This article will provide research findings from a case study concerning the use of PDAs to support the integration of technology into a Teacher Education program at a midwestern university's College of Education.
