Abstract

• Abstract. Preservice elementary students are equipped with Palm Pilots to facilitate connections and curriculum development in our Professional Development Schools. The PT3 Palm program at Clarke College has created a climate for college faculty, students, K-12 teachers and students to facilitate building collaborative models for exploring learning together through use of Palm handheld computers. This program is facilitated throughout the elementary and secondary pre-service teachers and education faculty at Clarke College. The use of handheld computers has greatly enhanced the learning process. Research findings conducted through the Palm Research Hub Grant supports engaged learning supported by Palm handheld devices. The Palm by its very nature of being “hands on” engages students through the senses of touch, sound, and sight; reinforcing learning through multiple intelligences.
