dc.descriptionGirls in Kenya commonly face multiple barriers to school attendance. At the same time, mobile phone use is growing throughout the country, and particularly in urban centres including Nairobi. As this technology spreads, the possibility increases of people using mobile phones for their own development purposes, including for education and learning. This article examines mobile phone use by girls at one secondary school in Nairobi, and in particular their attempts to mediate interrupted school attendance using this technology. This article is hosted by our co-publisher Taylor & Francis.
