Professors often warn students to turn their cell phones off before class.

If Klara Nahrstedt, a computer science professor, and her team of students and faculty can help it, teachers will begin encouraging their students to keep cell phones on during class.

Through a grant from the National Science Foundation, Nahrstedt and her team have set out to discover how the use of Mobile Learning Communities can enhance undergraduate students’ learning experience.

The team has begun developing a collection of Google Phone applications that will foster peer-to-peer sharing of educational tools.

Narhstedt said the Mobile Learning Communities will help demonstrate how mobile phones can help engage students in lessons.

“We wanted to understand what kind of educational applications would be useful if every undergraduate student would have a cell phone,” she said.
