British School to Test iPhone as Part of Educational Syllabus
Ok, if you were had plans to pose as an English schoolgirl to snag a free iPhone as part of a wacky escapade, now might be the time.
The London-based Gumley House Convent School, a small, Christian School for girls ages 11 to 18, has laid out its plan to use give Apple’s smartphone to a select group of 30 students as a test educational measure.
Previous efforts we’ve seen to rope the iPhone into modern education have been mostly at the collegiate level, but Gumley’s plan is still a bit vague.
The girls will have free access to all of the phone’s features with the exception of actual calls, and the trial will last until the end of the school year.
The school has yet to announce its final plans for the handsets.
