Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

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 Bell's instructions. All teachers and media specialists with sets of handheld computers should keep this manual close by as a ready resource.—Jodi Kearns, University of Akron, OH

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."

More About the Author

Ann (Anna Mae) Bell combined a career in education with writing and research. One facet of her life strengthened the other. After living in Iowa, Montana, Guam, Hawaii, and Oregon, Mrs. Bell currently makes her home in Georgetown, Texas.

Mrs. Bell started her writing career by authoring a series of nine books for Heartsong Presents (Autumn Love, Contagious Love,Inspired Love, Distant Love, Healing Love, Compassionate Love, Love Remembered, Love Abounds, and Mended Wheels). Barbour Press republished the first four books into one volume "Montana" and the second four into "Montana Skies." Those eight books were reprinted in large print by Thorndike Press.

In recent years, she went on to publish three educational technology books "Creating Digital Video in Your School," "Handheld Computers in Schools and Media Center," and "Exploring Web 2.0 - Second Generation Interactive Tools" along with one children's book "The Adventures of Scampy Churchmouse," an historical novel "Rebekah's Journey" and an biographical novel "The Sister of Mary Dyer: The High Price of Freedom."

A native of Adel, Iowa, Mrs. Bell received a B.A. degree from the University of Northern Iowa, a Library Media Endorsement from the University of Montana, and a Master of Library and Information Studies from the University of Hawaii.

A complete biography is available in Thomson Gale's 2007 "Contemporary Authors" Series, Volume 259.

Format: Paperback
Handheld computers can increase student learning and collaboration and can be easily integrated into a library or curriculum setting to reduce budgets and increase literacy skills - and this resource, Handheld Computers in Schools and Media Centers, is the perfect way of making the introduction work smoothly. Educators learn how to teach students to use handheld computers in conjunction with studies, with chapters discussing hardware, plug-in options, and more.
