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 how a university and its five public school partners worked together to write, apply for, and receive three HP Technology for Teaching Grants and the resulting partnershipping to create k-12 activities and pre-service teacher lessons that leverage mobile HP technology, that are more collaborative and student-centered, promoting problem-based learning.
