In today’s show, Kevin and Jason talk about writing on smartphones. Did you know a lot of students are writing more than tweets and texts on their phones? Is there anything wrong with writing everything on a smartphone?
We want to use our smartphones for good, so join us as we uncover how students use their phones for good.
In the show, we discuss:
Jason mentioned these books:
- Lives on the Boundary by Mike Rose
- The Tinkerers: The Amateurs, DIYers, and Inventors Who Make America Great by Alec Foege
