I absolutely have to agree with this. I have a small business with which I advertise through Facebook ads. Once a month I get a report of how my ad performed. I was blown away when at the end of the third month, I saw the same thing I had seen the previous two. That 97% of my online traffic came through mobile devices! Only 3% came from a PC. Wow, was I surprised. The trend now is to develop more apps to compliment our in classroom or online teaching.

By far this has been my favorite article that I have read up to this point. It helped me understand my younger brother and his friends and how they get through school by using their phone. My brother has multiple groups set up on his phone for each class that he is taking. The people who are in the group share information about the class and help each other with their homework. He told me the other day that if he was not able to communicate with his classmates as often as he does he probably wouldn't be doing as well. This article sheds some light on that topic.
