Sitting in a planning conversation with an instructional team–including Mary Ray (@mray29), one of the ideas that popped into my head as we were chatting was the idea of a diverse classroom with multiple devices in it.

To modify the app smashing definition Greg K came up with, here’s the “device smashing” definition:

Device smashing is the process of using multiple devices in conjunction with one another to complete a final task or project. 

I’m going to reflect on this a bit more, but with cloud storage, I find myself jumping from one device to another to get the results I want. As more devices–especially in BYOT environments–are available to students, device smashing will certainly become more common.

I just don’t know if the name sends the right message, though!
