Handhelds in Feltham - An Evaluation
Written by Nick Peacey on Saturday, 17 March 2007
/girl_handheld.jpgThe Feltham City Learning Centre and Hounslow eLearning asked SENJIT of the Institute of Education, University of London, to undertake an independent evaluation of an experimental project which provided hand-held Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs) to all pupils in Y6 classes in Victoria Junior School.  The experiment took place over the academic year 2005-2006.

The aim of the project was to explore how PDAs can improve standards and raise attainment, particularly in English and Mathematics.

Handheld Learning 2006 - Review
Written by Tony Vincent on Tuesday, 31 October 2006
/hlflag.jpgHandheld conferences in the U.S. are typically attended by 70 to 300 educators, most of them classroom teachers.

The conferences have one or two keynote presentations to set the stage for handheld computing in education. Afterwards, several breakout sessions are offered to help teachers make the most of handheld learning tools. The breakouts tend to focus on a certain grade level or subject area.

For instance, there are sessions on elementary math applications, high school writing strategies, and science probes. Sessions that are technical, like troubleshooting and repairing handhelds, are also offered. Vendors are set up, ready to show off their wares and answer questions. Of course, like so many conferences, turning in your evaluation at the end of the day enters you in a drawing to win fabulous prizes. (0) Leave a Comment
