School exam revision goes digital
Mobile phone
The school may introduce videos for more subjects
Staff at a Devon school have recorded exam revision notes for students to view on mobile phones or video players.

The videos at St Luke's Science and Sports College in Exeter are transferred via wireless technology.

Poetry is the first GCSE material to be covered using the videos, but the school plans to extend the scheme to other areas of the curriculum.

English teacher Mike Waller said: "It is so much fun for them because we are using their technology."

He said: "It does not take away from paper learning, but sometimes the kids do not want to go over and over their books for revision. This gives them another avenue.

"We have got the kids excited about learning and they want to share learning with each other."

The school said analysis of the use of the videos showed there had been "positive results".
