Carroll (2000) suggested ways in which technology would create new learning environments. He said that technology-enhanced units could be more student-centered and collaborative, that the learning should be more active and more problem-based. This study describes and evaluates lessons designed by teacher education faculty, content area faculty, public school teachers, and pre-service teachers using HP Tablet PCs as part of a HP Technology for Teaching grant. The researchers used the NETS standards to explore the learning environments. The results indicate that lessons using mobile technology can support innovative learning environments.
