Abstract

A curriculum based on handheld and mobile technology called PalmTech is under development to prepare preservice teachers as well as inservice teachers to use handheld technology in the classroom. Currently all preservice teachers at Albany State University must complete a technology curriculum called InTech before graduation to master their technology skills. This new PalmTech curriculum is being developed to complement and extend InTech in areas not being covered by InTech. PalmTech, despite its limitations, has the advantage of short training time, easy to use, low cost, and taping into the emerging technology. PalmTech is mainly designed to explore areas of teaching strategies not easily implemented by the traditional desktop technology.
