Research Base

This collection of lesson plans was created by graduate students at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. These graduate students took the class "Handhelds in Teaching and Learning" taught by Tony Vincent, creator of the Learning in Hand website. The final class project was to develop a lesson using handhelds that could be published online for teachers to use. These lesson plans were compiled over the course of three years, and were evaluated using this rubric: http://www.learninginhand.com/class/handoutsspring05/LessonPlan.pdf
