Grande finale for handheld computer educator program

1:46:13 PM CDT - Wednesday, April 23, 2003

The College of Education, in partnership with the instructional technology department of the Wichita public schools, will present two sessions Monday, May 5, that will demonstrate educational applications for handheld computers in the classroom. The Handheld Educators Leadership Program sessions at 9-11:15 a.m. and 1-3:15 p.m. will be at the Eugene M. Hughes Metropolitan Complex.

Door prizes include a handheld computer and refreshments will be provided.

H.E.L.P. is part of WSU's Project M3, Models, Mentors and Mobility. Project M3, funded by federal grants from the Department of Education, helps integrate technology into the classrooms. Thirty-two educators and administrators at eight Wichita schools have explored the educational applications of handheld computers in classrooms for the past several months. The educators and some students will be at poster sessions to share their excitement about this technology.

Just a few examples of the ways teachers can use handheld computers include entering data for assessments, lesson planning, teaching project-based units and giving students step-by-step instructions. Teachers also can record assignments, attendance and behavior patterns. Students might use handheld computers to conduct interviews, record data for science and math projects, draw charts and graphs, view and use maps, use flashcards, keep a journal, do book reports, take notes and do research.
