Amy Peterson

Ms. Peterson and her partners examine how to best use personal digital assistants (PDAs) to support and assess student learning. After learning how to use the technology, the participants implement a local history project in their classes. Participants use PDAs to provide formative and summative assessment, conduct research to identify resources for students, and photograph students performing project work. After completing the study group work, the team serves as mentors to other faculty who are interested in using PDAs for instruction.
