Multitasking people.... This theme is really interesting to me... and I think on it and read everywhere trying to find a scientific answer about it, in order to have a theoretical point of view to argument why my students (that in a big quantity are teachers) have to paid attention to me and to my explanations instead of theirs screens... obviously that this is also a question for much of the teachers I have in the courses I guide.
We, teachers, have to bear students (and teachers who think that carrying their laptops to class is a very good idea for their learning and specially for their attention) in our classes chating, blogging and watching facebook, twitter and youtube while we try to explain some concept or procedures...
Well... for our tranquility we have not to reach too much, because this is simply impossible, according to this short article that edits the interesting web page "Bussiness 2 community".
I invite you to read it and if you find something else, please send it to us to continuing studying this phenomenon in our classes!
