In looking at what I thought I knew about palms before I walked into class and what I have seen so far, I realize I didn't have a clue. I thought they were great tools for organization: phone book, addresses, lists, calendar, etc. I didn't know you could get software (some even free), beam to other palms and syn them to your computer. They could be a powerful tool for the classroom. Students are motivated to use handheld devices and are very comfortable with them. I would love to get them into the hands of my special education students. We could use them for the basic things like helping the students be organized and remember things, spelling tests, the calculator and the use of appropriate software.
