  • It was not so much the wish to break new ground as rather more mundane considerations that led Sackville School to look for alternative ways to communicate with its partner schools. Creating links with schools in Uganda and Afghanistan was all very well, but when their electricity supplies were intermittent and their internet connections poor, the prospects of establishing regular contact seemed to fade. So instead Sackville turned to mobile phones, opening up a whole new world of cross-cultural co-operation. The result, in a project backed by financial support from Nokia, has been a series of collaborations, ranging from pupils swapping picture messages of each other’s breakfasts and creating a wordle the content of text messages exchanged between the two schools, to videos with explanatory pop-up messages.
