Technology Integration: PDAs as an Instructional and Reflective Tool in the Science Classroom, J.E. Pedersen and E.A. Marek, Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE) [Online serial], 7(1), 2007. Abstract: The role of technology has an increased emphasis in the PK-12 classroom and in the preparation of teachers. The wide support for the integration of technology in day-to-day instruction is evidenced at many levels and through many organizations. The current study focused on examining and describing the experiences of faculty and interns as they relate to the use of the PDA. Results indicate that a clear and effective purpose for technology that matched specified outcomes was key for all of informants in this study. Results also indicated that the simplest, most efficient technology for a particular task was essential.
