Abstract

This case study explores the impact of a statewide professional development program targeting university faculty and handheld computers. One region's experience (the "case") is documented through interviews of a purposeful sampling of participants over a two-year period and their "trainer." Observations and collected artifacts also inform the study. Evidence supporting faculty members' abilities to adapt Palm technology to fit their specific disciplines and classroom needs is offered. Supported student learning and potential benefits for teacher candidates in the area of technology integration are also discussed.
