The article that I read was about Charting New Technology. It was about third-graders using handheld palm pilots in the classroom. It was a new way for them to learn any different subject. Being able to use the palms made them feel special because they were the first to use them in their school. They were from a day school for gifted children so most of them knew how to operate them and were not afraid to use them at all. Their teacher was excited to use them with her students because she felt that they were able to go wherever they felt comfortable. They could sit on the floor, walk around outside and them come back to her and share what they had learned.When she would talk to her students about what they had learned, she was able to take notes on each students learning process which was a plus. She liked the idea that each student had access to them rather than only 2-3 students having access to a computer in the classroom at a time.
