Abstract: 
Mobile handheld devices are increasingly being used in education. In this paper, we
undertook a review of empirical based articles to summarise the current research
regarding the use of mobile handheld devices (personal digital assistants/PDAs,
palmtops, and mobile phones) in K-12 and higher education settings. This review was
guided by the following four questions: (a) How are mobile handheld devices such as
PDAs, palmtops, and mobile phones used by students and teachers? (b) What types of
research methods have been applied using such devices? (c) What data collection
methods are used in the research? and (d) What research topics have been conducted
on these handheld devices in education settings, as well as their related findings? We
summarise and discuss some major findings from the research, as well as several
limitations of previous empirical studies. We conclude by providing some
recommendations for future research related to mobile handheld devices in education
settings.
