Vahey, P. & Crawford, V. (2001). Palm Education Pioneers program round I preliminary evaluation report. Menlo Park, CA: SRI International.
SRI International’s Center for Technology in Learning (CTL) is working with Palm, Inc., to award grants of Palm handheld computers to K-12 teachers and their students. Through the PEP program, Palm has equipped more than 175 classrooms throughout the United States with a handheld computer for every student. CTL is administering and evaluating the program, and CTL’s research will help determine the impact that handheld technologies can have on teaching and learning. In this way, the PEP program will make a significant contribution to the effective use of handheld computers for education.
