Laptops, Classrooms, and Matters of Electrate Concern

Alex Reid, Digital Digs, Jun 15, 2016
Commentary by Stephen Downes

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."
