Perhaps, a way to correct this situation is through the use of Global System for Mobile Communication (GSM) text messaging. This is because GSM is the one piece of technology that is virtually in the hands everyone, most especially youth of which inherently majority are students.

It will also help shed light on some conceptual aspects of GSM and also the functional and dysfunctional perspectives of text messaging.
