In a country where the number of mobile phones exceeds the number of people (ComReg, 2006) mobile devices can play a vital role in teaching and learning. Unfortunately many schools still prohibit their use inside the building. If you are lucky enough to work in a more enlightened environment, the list below provides a number of applications which can be used with mobile phones
