Handheld technologies include products made by Palm (Palm Pilot), Handspring (Visor, Edge, etc.), and many other companies.
Handheld technologies are frequently used to organize dates (the soccer mom function) and to schedule business meetings
But these technologies are more than just ways to keep track of schedules. A variety of tools are available for Palm type devices that are applicable for teachers and students.
Three examples of such programs are highlighted below
This first application, 4T School is good for students to keep track of assignments in every class. You can preview a copy here .

using Sketchy to make animations. These animations can be used to retell a folktale

erupts. Look for Sketchy
