How 
With my students, I use TI calculators and Sketchpad.
Personally, I'm pretty good with TI calculators and Sketchpad. 
Why 
My experience lies mainly in using Sketchpad in the 912 classroom (particularly Geometry and PreCalculus) and making cool sketches with Sketchpad. I've taught several Sketchpad workshops for teachers and used Sketchpad as the basis for a presentation at our local conference (Orange County Math Conference) on Trig in a Circle. I have written activities and lessons to use with specific sketches in order to teach kids particular math concepts, but what I enjoy most is tweaking/adapting (or creating new) sketches. I would love an excuse to spend a week making and adapting sketches based on feedback from teachers!
