Abstract

Penn State Abington has integrated the student use of personal digital assistant (PDA) technology into several Information Sciences and Technology and engineering courses in order to foster active and collaborative learning experiences in the classroom and laboratory. Activities supported by the use of these handheld computers include electronic team exams, distribution of notes, programming, collaborative database projects, and access to web-based materials. Student access to handheld, mobile computers provides opportunities for improvements in both learning effectiveness and in the efficient delivery of instruction.
