Unfortunately we find that what happens the most, especially in schools is that educators and administrators tend to shy away from this responsibility and limit their teaching to the way they have been taught, thus excluding all the elements that are now pronouncing us as digital citizens in a society.
Sieg Holle's curator insight, May 10, 2013 12:15 PM

In the digital world we are human beings -free of the  many artificial restrictions and other special interest agendas and use our free will to engage our ideas and actions. It is natural - people can chose who they want to communicate with  It is a positive MOOC of that will expand the world into a new age of freedom and abundance .

How Does Multitasking Change the Way Kids Learn? | MindShift

How Does Multitasking Change the Way Kids Learn? | MindShift | Technophilia Vs Technophobia | Scoop.it

Although the students had been told at the outset that they should “study something important, including homework, an upcoming examination or project, or reading a book for a course,” it wasn’t long before their attention drifted: Students’ “on-task behavior” started declining around the two-minute mark as they began responding to arriving texts or checking their Facebook feeds. By the time the 15 minutes were up, they had spent only about 65 percent of the observation period actually doing their schoolwork.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, May 4, 2013 9:56 PM

This post looks at how multi-tasking in impacting student work. Although based on a recent study the post states that there is "a growing body of research focused on a very particular use of technology: media multitaskingwhile learning." The evidence shows "learning is far spottier and shallower than if the work had their full attention. They understand and remember less, and they have greater difficulty transferring their learning to new contexts."

After a brief review of a number of studies the post looks at information about the brain and multitasking as well as what might be done to help students prioritize.
