Abstract

Wirelessly interconnected handheld devices allow Collaborative 1:1, or face-to-face Computer Supported Collaborative Learning, which has shown to be a technology that fosters collaboration and constructivist learning. Dissemination of the technology has been slow mainly due to the technology cost. To provide Pocket PCs to a whole classroom is beyond emerging markets reach. Mobile phones are an alternative. Users buy them, releasing public money to be invested in the classroom technology. A second alternative is Single Display Groupware, where different users share the same display each withy their own pointing device. In this paper, we show how these widely available technologies can be used for achieving these same objectives as Pocket PCs have previously done.
