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

  • Poll Every Where: Simple Text Message Voting- Poll Everywhere is the world’s first all-software audience response system.
  • Wiffiti: Use your cell phones to text information to the website for free.
  • Mobiode: a simple and flexible solution for mobile surveys and polls, which can be used to collect data from users via their mobile phones.
  • Utterli: Use a cell phone to post images, videos, audio or text to a blog or web space.
  • TalkShoe: a service that enables anyone to easily create, join, or listen to Live Interactive Discussions, Conversations, Podcasts and Audioblogs using cell phones.
  • Radar: Real time sharing of cameraphones pictures, videos and conversations.
  • Qik : enables you to share your videos and moments live with your friends, family and the world-right from your mobile phone!
  • ChaCha: Text a question to Cha Cha with a cell phone to get an answer.
  • TextTheMob: The easiest and most entertaining way to collect feedback from your audience: Project polls or message boards on a large screen, have everyone send their input via their cell phones and see results instantly!
