Mobile use cases inside & outside the classroom 1/4

Over the next four weeks, we'll explore some unique use cases from inside and outside of the classroom. To kick-off this week's post, our guest blog is presented by Jon Eby, from our mobile software dev team. 

There's a question I frequently find myself dealing with that I'm not a very big fan of:

This is usually followed by a discussion or at least a few comments about texting in class, poor attention spans, people being more comfortable messaging each other than actually talking to each other, and so on.
