In a culture of BYOD, many see smartphones as a great equaliser. However, this raises a new set of problems as the experience on mobile is considerably different to siting at a keyboard. As Michael Caulfield explains:

How do we get kids to work on laptops, and stop reading on phones? How do we get them to learn the techniques of multi-tab investigations? Because this world where we’ve started reading everything on single-tabbed phone browsers, without workable copy and paste, without context menus, without keyboards? It’s going to make us very dumb compared to the people that came before us. And I think we need all the intelligence we can use right now. (Source)
