Mobiles are Game Changers

Sam Harrelson has been blogging about the way that mobile devices impacted Cyber Monday sales.

Turns out that mobile devices aren’t only impacting the world of marketing. They are also increasing literacy development in children:

The research, to be published in the Journal of Computer Assisted Learning next month, found evidence of a “significant contribution of textism use to the children’s spelling development during the study”.

This study, which took account of individual differences in IQ, found higher results in test scores recorded by children using mobile phones after 10 weeks compared with the start of the study.

Maybe it’s time to agree that mobiles are game changes.
