Be a teacher's hero. Through handheld devices, such as a Palm TX, teachers can distribute assignments, issue a quiz or test to ascertain a student's application of academic skills. Then, using Timpanogos Technologies' SchoolWork application, students submit the assignment back to the teacher electronically. If the teacher has input an answer key, the software automatically grades the assignment. Students like working with technology, teachers like the freedom from grading papers, and districts like the idea of higher productivity.
Street price: Roughly $250 (Palm TX)
