Our facilitators take students out of classroom during the school time and students use the mobile application to collect scientific data of birds. The data later on is submitted to Cornell Lab of Ornithology for research through our website. Students also go through a thought process of how a scientist identifies a bird in the field. So at the end of the program, the students can identify more birds, understand how birds, as a critical indicator of our environment, impact our daily life and how important the data that they have collected.
In 1998, one of the first examples of distributing and selling media content through the mobile phone was the sale of ringtones by Radiolinja in Finland.
