Adrienne LaFrance says in NiemanLab, “The younger you are, the more likely it is that you mainly use a phone to go online.”
I guess if you work with learners then you would be unwise to ignore this Pew study about how 31% of adults use phones for most of their Internet access, 45% for ages 18-29.
It’s convenient, cellphones are easier to use all the time, low income folks tend to use it as their only net access. If you are not factoring these facts into your pedagogy, then you are already way behind the curve. Yes, most of us are behind the curve. Dammit.
