  Want to use PalmOS handheld technology in the classroom?
  FlingIt, a free application from, instantaneously
  "flings" Web pages from a desktop computer to a handheld

  Users can decide whether or not to include graphics and
  determine the link depth of the captured Web pages. FlingIt
  sites can be beamed from one handheld computer to another
  for the sharing of Web-based resources.

  Do you use the Math Forum's Problems of the Week? Use
  FlingIt to download a PoW to your handheld and then beam it
  to your students' handhelds. Students can work on their
  problem solving in class and then computer lab time can be
  used to submit solutions.

  For more ideas on how to use handhelds in the classroom,
  consider purchasing this new book offered through the ISTE
  (International Society for Technology in Education)
