Taking Center Stage – Act II

Personal digital assistants (PDAs)

The Association of California School Administrators (ACSA) provides administrators with software, called the Walk In, that helps them conduct a quick and meaningful “walk-through” with minimal disruption in the classroom. The software helps principals generate reports after classroom visits. The PDA-generated reports focus on the California Standards for the Teaching Profession, and specific standards the teacher may need to address. In addition, leaders can use PDAs for facilities management.
