I am also interested in any published research on the effectiveness of
Inspiration to teach reading and cognitive mapping. Does anyone know?

Hi Marilyn,

Please comment about the Inspiration software program. I have a copy of
this sitting in a box, and your comments make the program sound really
worthwhile. Perhaps I could get this software placed on computers in our
classroom for writing development for the students.

Also, has anyone used Steck-Vaughn's Study Buddy handheld unit with
students? These are more expensive than the Palm, and serve a different
purpose. Study Buddy technology appears to be a handheld version of
lessons in the five subject areas. Palms appear to be more of a writing
and organizational tool.

Please also let me know if anyone out there is using a Palm for Math
lessons or games.
