Nicola Pallitt's curator insight, November 1, 2013 5:59 AM

"The path of technology integration in education is lined with disruptions on one side and opportunities on the other. Technology teams work to bring useful technology into teaching, all with good intentions, only to encounter unwanted side effects such as distraction and disruption in the classroom. The challenges loom large in classrooms with wireless connections, especially when universities give students ubiquitous Internet access and sometimes even the devices for such access." 


"methods for dealing with such distractions, ranging from technical control to pedagogical innovation."
