Having PDA's made available in the classroom would be great! As well as the idea you mentioned Adrian about mapping, PDA's could simply be used in conjunction with everyday classroom work. 

You could have the students:
1. Draw a concept map 
2. Record observations on a field trip 
3. Keep a journal 
etc etc..

PDA's also have a number of educational software applications available which could be also be used in the classroom.
