She phrases the two "myths" that I question in this way, but I think misses the point:
- Myth No. 2: BYOD will result in lessons geared toward the weakest device.
- Myth No. 6: Cell phones are not that powerful, so we should not waste our time with them.
So, if the option is ONLY mobile phone, then they can be the device. But if it is realistic to consider other options, from netbooks through i-Pads to laptops, then these other "Ds" win hands down.
For digital scholarship, involving extensive writing, researching and reading, the mobile phone does not hack it.
(For messaging, light e-mail, Twitter, G+, FB, everyday camera, recording audio, and even reading from i-Books in the dentist's waiting room, the smart phone is great)
