MEDIA REVIEWS
"This guide will be a tremendous resource for students and teachers who are using handheld devices. Thoroughly indexed and easy to read and follow, it will give teachers and media specialists a means to integrate handheld computers into their curricula and library-media programs. Bell discusses using the devices to meet national and state academic standards and curriculum integration; selecting appropriate hardware and software; finding, assimilating, circulating, and designing digital media, like e-books and e-audiobooks; and common copyright issues with this format. Some charts and images illustrate the instructions. All teachers and media specialists with sets of handheld computers should keep this manual close by as a ready resource." - School Library Journal
"Written by a librarian and online instructor, this handy reference briefly outlines all aspects of handheld devices in educational settings. Beginning with national and state standards in language arts and technology, the author discusses the appropriate use of handheld devices to support those standards before talking about how to select hardware for electronic books, audio, video and podcasting. Guidelines are provided for selecting software, and technology is then discussed in more detail, including uses in the curriculum and digital media copyright issues. Record keeping and management from the teacher/librarian's perspective closes out this resource. Tables, graphs, charts, and photographs enhance the text, which although brief, is a fine beginning resource for anyone considering such devices in an educational environment. This well-indexed book's appendix includes a list of e-terms, a glossary, and a list of sources. Although a reader needs some prior knowledge to fully comprehend the content, Bell provides and excellent starting point." - VOYA
