Mobile Web 2.0 in Your School?
The need for a free and operator independent Universal Mobile School platform that makes it easy to communicate on all types of mobile phones is huge!
"Just like any parent I'm struggling to make the logistics work. With a full time job, three kids, a wife and really tight schedules it can be pretty hard to keep up, but Squace makes everything a little easier", says, Thomas Westerlund Düner from the Stockholm suburb Bromma and father of 3.
The mobile phone will be the essential communication tool from day care centers, preschools and onward through all the school years. The anytime, everywhere and allways on capability and the deep penetation of web ready mobile phones among all social classes makes it the obvius choice (there is aprox about fore times as many web ready cell phones as there is connected pc´s out there on the globe...).
"The School In the Mobile" is a large scale mobile web project rolling out a new universal mobile school platform in Stockholm, Sweden.
The aim is to make school information easy to access over the mobile web in all types of web ready cell phones (from basic feature phones to high end snart phones) and doing so nurging and enhancing the everyday use of the mobile as a school-com-tool!
it´s amazing how easy this non-sms-concept is!
