Whereas most research describes results of using handheld computers with third- through ninth-graders, our evaluation discovered that handheld computers have great potential for primary students in kindergarten through second grade classrooms. We found that primary students could competently use handheld computers to learn state literacy objectives. We also found that the perceptions of preservice teachers using handheld computers to teach literacy, changed from skeptical to enthusiastic. This research study was designed to gather data of preservice teachers and their perceptions in using handheld computer to teach literacy in an elementary classroom.
