"Mobile Phones and Other Disturbing Objects…"
Ott, Torbjörn
International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Association for Development of the Information Society (IADIS) International Conference on Mobile Learning (Lisbon, Portugal, Mar 14-16, 2013)

In the debate the mobile IT of mobile phones has been grouped with what is often referred to as "other disturbing objects", and has been regarded as self evident not being used in class. Mobile phones have been used as anecdotic evidence for accentuating political messages from both the right and the left wing. [For the full proceedings, see ED562140.]
