    breaks from being

    Hi!

    What is the exact meaning of the words printed in bold? This passage is from a text abot using mobile devices in education.
    "Device options force a pedagogical understanding of the learning potential of devices, and breaks from being identified with IOS, android, smartphone, or tablet to the learning affordances of mobile device utilization."

    Thanks very much.

    Excuse me! The thread should be breaks from being. I am really sorry!!

    No words are in bold. Perhaps the formatting got mangled somewhere.

    In any case, the text as a whole means its author did not understand the subject, whatever it may have been, and hoped nobody would notice.

    It's poorly written. I think it just means that teachers should understand the electronic tools their students are using.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    I have amended your thread title so it includes the correct quote.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
