Mathematics is a school subject where the use ICT is often reported to be less than in other subjects in school learning programs. The Project K-Nect program operating in Onslow County schools aims to ‘increase student achievement and decrease the digital access gap amongst students’ (p. 1) in learning math through the use of additional resources accessed by cell/mobile phones. The 2010 results, according to an evaluation report by Project Tomorrow were very positive. This DERN review examines the evaluation results of Project K-nect, one-year on, that is, in its third-year of operation. Project Tomorrow has undertaken a further evaluation of Project K-nect following consultations with 59 students and 3 teachers engaged with Algebra l, Algebra ll and pre-calculus courses in two secondary schools. As part of Project K-nect, which is a demonstration project highlighting the curricular uses of smart phones, each student was given a smartphone and 24/7 access to the internet.
