Last night during our DLC hangout Kristen prompted us to think about smart phones as digital writing tools, and I’ve been mulling this over today. It seems to me that we often think about students using their phones to craft digital texts because we’re concerned about their limited access to other digital technology both in school and at home. How do we reframe this question from an asset-based perspective? It seems to me that smart phones have all sorts of advantages over desktops, laptops, and even tablets: they’re portable, discreet, ubiquitous, convenient, app-able, personal, and not stained with the stench of school. What else?
