The Smartphone Schools program is unique in that it enables students collaborate with others and integrate mentor feedback into their work online. Program participants will develop basic numeracy, literacy and life skills, including English, citizenship, and entrepreneurship skills. These foundational skills prepares students to re-enter formal education, participate in the economy, and integrate into local host-communities.
