I had always thought it would be neat to know about palm technology and its use, both in my personal life and in my career as an educator. I have admired the younger people that I have come in contact with who seem to use palms so proficiently. Before this course I had not had the opportunity to ever try a palm. I was somewhat intimidated and was not even sure where the "ON" button was. Having a palm pilot put into my hands the first day and helping me get the power turned on and use the basic features of it, helped me to understand a little better how using this technology is similar to the technology I already use and understand. Besides the datebook feature and Office software, I believe I would use the Participate Software introduced today and GradeQuick. For me it will be slower at first to set up, but I think it will be time invested well.
