Abstract

Technology integration into the curriculum is an ongoing part of education. Teachers are expected to use and teach technology. Most workshops or seminars designed to educate and equip teachers to accomplish this task are one-time sessions. Teachers are then expected to implement what they have learned in their classrooms. Research suggests that follow-up support is necessary to improve the retention of these participants. This paper focuses on a master's level course geared to teach inservice teachers how to integrate handheld computers into the classroom in a meaningful way that enhances their own teaching and their students' learning.
