Title: Learning with palms
Post by: Jeana on April 01, 2005, 08:25:21 PM

              In my class we have palmsand we enjoy them. They help you with lots of stuff. You can load internet sites on them and read the sites on your palms.  It's really convenient to sit around the room and be on the internet. We have a memo pad and it's really neat. We have a lot of things to write down in school and we use it a lot to type assignments on. We really enjoy the palms a lot and the things they do. There are KWL charts with plenty of room for six or more things for each subject. It really assists the learning process with all the things that they do. We really like using technology too. There are even learning games on the palms that teach about the stock market. There are math games that are pretty nice too. We really enjoy learning with the palms and our teacher has a lot of trust in us with the palms. We know what to do on them and we know how to take care of them too. We are very glad our teacher has trust in us. Well I better go. I have to get some work done

I enjoyed hearing what you do with your palms.  Are there other ways that palms or other technology help you learn?  Are there ways that YOU would use the palm if you could design lessons?  Can you think of any programs that might help you learn?

It was interesting to read your report on the use of palms in class but do you every use them outside the classroom, say on field trips.  You say you type assignments on them - do you have a separate keyboard because I find entering data on my hand-held Dell Axim very tedious and would not like to type a whole assignment that way.

It was interesting to hear a student perspective on using handhelds in the classroom setting.  I like that u included some exaamples of how you use your palm.  I am currently taking a class on how to use Handhelds in learning.  Your input on this forum will be of great help to me and my peers.

I'm very excited about the things you are able to do with your handheld.  You make it seem like a very worthwhile investment.  I am currently taking and introduction class to learn how to use a handheld and how it can benefit me as a teacher.  Do you have any suggestions about the brand name that is best to use in an educational setting?  Thanks, Wendy

I was interested in reading what you wrote about how you use palms in your classroom. I believe the kids would LOVE doing their assignments, math, etc. on their palms. Who wouldn't want to be so COOL doing assignments. Just the technology itself, I believe, would interest the students enough to want to complete assignments. We as adults are interested, as well as the students. May I ask, what grade do you teach? I teach kindergarten and I am looking for ideas on how to use palms with 5 and 6 year olds. It may not be practical, but my instructor said I may be surprised. Can you help?

I'm an education student with two young girls; and I happen to be a huge handheld fan.

My youngest daughter has been drawing on my handheld since she was one.  Now, at age 4, she does simple addition problems on MathAce in conjunction with an abacus.  We have photo scavenger hunts using my Zire 72 built in camera.  We use the program DropAirs with a little ABC pairboard I created in which she matches upper and lower case letters.  As far a drawing goes, we're starting to post her drawings in Sketcher and then having her audioblog her story.

My seven year old 2nd grader uses math programs, graffiti, spelling practice, time with clock practice (dropairs), plus all the photo scavenger hunts and audioblogging.

We cant wait for summer because we take our handhelds with us on nature walks, take pictures of cool insects, fungus, etc that we find to research later.
