Making technology integration relevant by eliminating the access barrier for preservice teachers is a problem that may be solved for educators of preservice teachers by the utilization of PDA (Personal Digital Assistant) devices. For approximately $250, students can be equipped with the PDA, keyboard, and software necessary to read, write, collect data, and create presentations. This paper outlines the perceptions of the preservice teachers in their beginning technology class that utilized PDAs to support their learning experiences and discusses the appropriate use of PDAs to integrate technology into classroom activity structures.
