Penn State Abington has integrated the student use of handheld computer technology to foster active and collaborative learning experiences in the classroom and laboratory in a sophomore-level introductory digital systems course in the fall of 2001 and 2002. The handheld computer provided each student with access to useful course material and tools, which enhanced the learning experience in and out of the classroom. Additionally, teams of students explored innovative uses of handheld computers in a variety of applications including robotics, GPS systems, music, and circuit design. Based on data from a student survey, the handheld computer was judged to be a useful educational tool.
