Ubiquitous Learning Technology Initiative (ULTI)

Georgia State University

Partnering with Vanderlyn Elementary School (DeKalb County) and the PT3 grant, ULTI explores the potential for learning with abundant technology.

ULTI’s first project involved Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs), which were distributed to 17 4th-graders and their teachers and used in an advanced reading program. Initial findings show that PDA technology can be a strong component of classroom instruction, particularly in the area of information organization, as well as being an important resource for teacher classroom management and lesson planning.
