    Abstract

    This paper aims to discuss the initial views of learning disability nurses to the distribution of handheld computers
    via the Assessment and Learning in Practice Settings (ALPS) programme. At this stage the mobile devices,
    supplied by the ALPS programme, were given to help the students access information and keep in touch with
    colleagues and staff back in the university ahead of the implementation of their use for assessment. The paper
    will present results from the first year of practice use of the devices including, if and how the devices have been
    used, looking at variables such as age, gender, and previous use of technology.
