[[abstract]]This study aims to investigate effects of using PAD in assisting teaching and learning of elementary science subject. The effects of explored from the following five aspects: teaching methods, teaching beliefs, teacher/students interactions, students’ performance and self-control learning. The case selected was a science and living technology teacher who was teaching a year 5 class with 34 students. The results show that students appreciated using PDAs in learning. They considered the concept mapping tool and learning resources provided in the PDAs very helpful. Using PDAs also promoted students’ cooperative learning and active learning. In addition, it had effect on changing the case teacher’s teaching belief from teacher-center to student-canter. However,, there were problems encountered when integrating PDAs into learning activities, such as Bluetooth transmission failures, limited battery time, and students’ unfamiliar with PDA operations. Key words： Mobile learning, Case study, Elementary science
