Roland, Jennifer
Learning & Leading with Technology, v31 n4 p6-11 Dec-Jan 2004
Handhelds are one of the hottest educational technologies right now, but how do you provide this resource to your students?

Other schools purchase sets of handhelds that students use in class as needed, more like microscopes used in the science lab--a lab model. But which of these models is right for your school? First, you?ll need to think about your budget constraints and your goals for using handhelds in your school.
