Alex Reid points to the obvious counterexample to studies claiming that students in classes with laptops do worse than students in classes without: "t someone might conduct a different study wherein the students who brought laptops to class were also allowed to use them during the multiple-choice final." Yes, that might have a different result. But more to the point: "None of us, students and faculty included, have really figured out how to live, learn, and work in the emerging digital media-cognitive ecology," he writes. "So it is certainly true that we can struggle to accomplish various purposes with technologies pulling us in different directions."
