dc.description.abstract This study reports on design criteria for mobile phones as developed and implemented by students during a school research project, tasking them to create resources for their disadvantaged peers who have with no access to educational resources and traditional internet capabilities via desktop. Teaching strategies utilized, and events leading up to and culminating in students being critical creators of educational material, factors that influenced their decision making process as well as design features of the artefacts will be covered. Design criteria were negotiated, and articulated and used as a rubric for assessing and scoring entries. Findings indicate that even though they were very competent mobile phone users, they were not confident in their more traditional ICT skills but were very willing to learn. The transfer of concepts and skills from phone to desktop applications was observed. en
