Electronic Organizers and Personal Digital Assistants (PDA)
Electronic Organizers, Personal Digital Assistants (PDA) and Handheld Personal Computers (HPC) are electronic handheld devices that offer simple, quick, fun and smart ways to communicate, teach and learn wherever you go. With these devices, an instructor or learner can do amazing things: access the Internet, take notes, calculate, sketch ideas, collect data, access resources, and manage activities and courses.
The Palm Pilot is one example of a personal data assistant. It allows the user to store and always have on hand, important addresses and phone numbers - family, friends, co-workers, doctors, and instructors. Users can also stay on top of their schedule with reminders and alarms for appointments. As well, they can keep a to-do list and check things off as they go.
