The University of Southern Mississippi has been a pioneer in the field of using handhelds for administrative leadership. Each year they host a School Leadership Institute for building-level administrators. One part of that institute focuses on using handhelds as a tool for time management, classroom observation, student records management, and other tasks.

Drs. Ronald Styron and Kyna Shelley are now conducting a research study on handheld use by school administrators.

The purpose of the study is to evaluate school leaders’ opinions about and their use of personal digital assistants or handheld computers. There is some research to suggest that PDA’s are viewed as making the job of school leader a more efficient undertaking. Likewise, efficient and effective leadership has been associated with stronger school performance.

If you are a K-12 school administrator and use a handheld, they need your input for this research. The survey is online and should only take about 10 minutes to complete.

Thanks in advance for your valuable assistance.
