Nathan Kerr and Robert Douglas, teachers at Howick College, participated in the mLearning Capability Pilot Project in 2010. The project explored the impact of mobile technologies on teaching and learning.

The project report also addressed emerging findings in relation to the use of mobile technologies in schools including:
• Infrastructure
• Students’ and teachers’ perceptions of using mLearning devices
• The role of pedagogical content knowledge (PCK)
• Characteristics of teachers likely to engage in such innovations
• Characteristics of other key personnel
• Leadership
