PAAM for Pocket PC enables teachers to effectively manage and assess students'
documents created on their handheld computers. When students sync their handheld

can also review their child's work from their home computer.

One of the keys to successful integration of any technology into the classroom
is to make certain that the technology enriches curriculum rather than becomes
the curriculum. Our goal is for teachers to infuse the handhelds into their
lessons rather than dramatically change their teaching practices. The collection
of lessons included helps teachers incorporate HLE into their curriculum in
meaningful ways by providing many examples and lessons they can adapt for
their own purposes.
Each lesson details software used, learning objectives, and provides a short
narrative as to how a particular lesson might fit into a larger unit or subject
matter. In addition, all lessons cite national standards, assessment strategies,
and other tips from teachers based on in-class experiences.
