AuthorsJones, S.
Abstract

The phenomenal rise of the smartphone, and the rapid diffusion of mobile computing generally, are amongst the most notable developments of recent times in information and communication technologies (ICTs). The smartphone has become a ubiquitous communication tool, evolving into a digital Swiss Army knife, with an ever growing number of functions, from personal communications manager, navigation system, gaming terminal and camera, to payment device, internet access point and all-round digital lifestyle hub. For these reasons, the smartphone represents a prime topic for teaching and thinking about ICT ethics. This paper proposes an inter-disciplinary approach to this task.
