Context / rationale

During the school year 2009/2010 all 17 pupils of a pilot class (5th grade) at the "Projektschule Goldau" (Switzerland) get a personal smartphone (Apple iPhone 3G) which they can take home and use outside school after a certain introducation phase.

With a smartphone kids have a tool for reading, writing, calculating, drawing, taking pictures, listening to and recording music and sounds, making phone calls and surfing and communicating on the internet anytime and anywhere. The kids shall use the smartphone in and out of school and thereby learn to use it as part of their personal learning environment.

The project is lead by the Institute for Media and School (IMS) of the University for teacher education Central Switzerland - Schwyz. It is partly funded by Swisscom, so there are no costs for the school, the parents or the kids.
