Mobile phones can be used in education just as computers can. They can for instance serve as social tools that pupils use to develop one another’s projects. Mobile phone games can also enhance learning. Finnish schools have started using mobile phones as a proper learning tool. Professor Jari Multisilta from Pori University Consortium has been studying the potential educational uses of mobile phones since the late 1990s.
