MONTREAL - It sometimes seems that kids today are so digitally connected they're capable of talking on the phone while sending a text message, replying to an email and posting on a friend's Facebook wall - all within a span of 30 seconds. And while technology may seem to dominate most areas of their lives, some experts say society is losing out by not allowing it to play a bigger role in formal education.
