Introduction
  • Many of our students use technology daily with the use of the mobile phone.

Literacy student, Jill uses her phone to play Words with Friends. Her tutor has never played this game, but she encourages Jill to do so. Jill is increasing her spelling skills, learning new vocabulary and having fun!

John texts his tutor on his phone to tell her that he is just arriving at the library. Is she upstairs or downstairs at the library? John is communicating using writing in a way that has become natural to him even though he does not consider himself a good writer.
