Create a dynamic, interactive environment that extends beyond the classroom!

In this digital era, how can educators seamlessly incorporate technology into everyday classroom use? What tools will empower students, promote digital equity, and extend thoughtful learning? In this book, teachers learn how to build learning experiences that use technology to support thinking, data analysis, and information retrieval and sharing for standards-linked learning both in and beyond the classroom.

Changing How We Teach and Learn With Handheld Computers shows how handheld computing can help students grow in academic understanding. These tools enable students to collaborate and network while promoting the extension of learning beyond the classroom.

Carolyn Staudt, a leading expert in technology integration, gives educators practical applications through:

- Learning activities in all content areas

- Advice on downloading student friendly software

- Beaming and data sharing tips

- Step-by-step processes for manipulating and displaying data

- Case studies from classrooms already employing handhelds

Handheld devices are already a part of the students' world. Now educators can embrace this technology and create a powerful learning environment that leaves no student behind.
