Using mobile phones and handheld computers to teach basic skills could help a generation of youngsters turned off by traditional education. That is the hope of those involved in the 4.5m euro (#3m) m-learning project, an EU-backed initiative taking place in the UK, Sweden and Italy.
The aim of the project is to see how mobile devices can be used to teach basic numerical and literacy skills to young adults that have dropped out of the education system.
