Abstract

The Ubiquitous Learning Technologies Initiative (ULTI) examines the effects of pervasive use of technology in educational settings. We equipped students in an elementary school classroom with PDA's and instituted a series of training and instructional activities using them. Throughout the course of the first year a team of researchers observed, conducted interviews, collected artifacts and conducted surveys of the teachers and students involved. We analyzed this data to determine what if any themes emerged. We then implemented the project for a second year with a different class of students. In the second year, in addition to the qualitative analysis, we assessed the impact of the PDA's on the students's mastery of the National Educational Technology Standards for Students using a pre-, post-, experimental and control group design. This paper presents the results of the qualitative and quantitative analyses of this project over two years of implementation.
