Abstract: Handheld computers (Palms, Visors, PocketPCs, etc.) are being used in classrooms around the country with educators using the technology for writing, visualizing, data collection, data manipulations, and simulations. These devices have much potential to help students learn and produce. The Office of Technology and Assessment at the University of Nebraska at Omaha is focusing on effective uses of handhelds in the learning process, actively developing curricular ideas, and researching P12 applications of handhelds in Nebraska classrooms, as well as developing curriculum activities for our own teacher education courses. This paper will outline the rationale for using handhelds in schools and document two Omaha area school infusion projects being conducted in a 1st grade and a 5th grade.
