Mobile phones could improve school standards

Letting children use their mobile phones in the classroom could improve school standards, according to research from the University of Nottingham. Researchers watched 14 to 16-year-olds in five schools where teachers were encouraged to allow pupils to use mobiles for homework projects. After the 9-month experiment, most pupils said they felt more motivated. [Press release]
