A Handful of Learning
Villano, Matt
T.H.E. Journal, v34 n12 p22-23 Dec 2007
In many classrooms, movies are a special occasion--a tool that creative teachers intersperse with regular lessons to supplement the everyday curriculum and make learning fun. At the nine school districts served by the Monroe 2-Orleans Board of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES) in Spencerport, New York, movies are becoming part of the routine, with the help of specially customized handheld computers that are bringing students engaging instructional math content right into the palms of their hands. After identifying a need to improve math achievement among its middle school students, BOCES enlisted the help of K12 Handhelds, a technology integrator in Long Beach, California, that specializes in building multimedia applications specifically for handhelds. This article talks about handheld computers which educators are turning into to bring multimedia applications such as digital movies and e-books to their students.
