The project, “Wirelessly Connecting Youth for Future Success”, investigated the use of mobile technology to connect with disengaged youth.

Students from the GETT Centre used a variety of apps on iPads to develop and build their literacy and numeracy skills.

The project found that the use of this technology has improved the engagement and learning outcomes of students involved in the program.
