Laptops in Lectures

Tony Bates, Weblog, Feb 11, 2009
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Relevant question from Tony Bates: "If most students have laptops, why are they still having physically to come to a lecture hall? Why can't they get a podcast of the lecture? Second, if they are coming, why are the lecturers not requiring them to use their laptops for study? Why not break them into small groups and get them to do some online research then come back with group answers to share with the rest of the class?"
