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.

Hi there, I am a college student in Ireland writing a paper on the use of mobile hand-held computers in Irish schools (not very common) and wonder if you could give me a run down on exactly what you use your hand-held for.  I have a Dell Axim X30 and find it very limiting because there is very little space.  I developed a short lesson involving the use of pictures and speech and could not fit it on the device!  How do you and your friends use your PDAs.   Love to hear from you.

Hello everyone,  I am a Masters in Computing student based in Ireland and am coming to the end of a taught Masters in Computing.  For my final project I decided to focus on hand-held computers for second level students and the benefits the use of these devices could bring to Irish schools.   I am using a Dell Axim X30 supplied by the college for this project but so far have found it very disappointing.   The idea is for students to use the hand-held out in the field, in particular the rocky seashore, and I developed a programme with pictures and sound narration for them to take to the seashore.  However the finished product is too large to the stored on the hand-held without additional storage.   The purchase of the hand-helds would represent a considerable investment for parents and schools without the need to purchase memory cards as well.

Any opinions on hand-held computers for use by students both from students and teachers would be much appreciated.  Is there a better model than the X30?  How are hand-helds currently used by schools?

Any input would be very much appreciated.   My project must be submitted by early September.

I should also tell you all that although I am a full time student I would also qualify as a 'silver surfer' and will be celebrating my 60th birthday in October.   I returned to education very late in life and got my batchelors degree in 2003.  I started out using a manual typewriter back in the 60s and progressed through electric typewriters, word processors and finally computers.    It will be a real achievement to finally get my Masters degree and any help or advice will be very much appreciated./
