Technology Creating a Generation of Distracted Students [STUDY]

Technology Creating a Generation of Distracted Students [STUDY] | Higher Education and more... | Scoop.it
A new study by the Pew Research Center has found that though digital technology has reshaped the way students conduct research, it has been harmful in the way students process material and their overall ability to distinguish quality content from unreliable sources.

87% of teachers in the study — performed in conjunction with the College Board and the National Writing Project — said technology is creating an “easily distracted generation with short attention spans.” And 64% of teachers (from middle and high schools) say today’s digital technologies “do more to distract students than to help them academically.”

PEW Internet study which grounds the relationship between technology and distraction (especially in students) in data and analytical research results. Good read for those who'd like to see the hard facts behind these notions of shortened attention spans in the digital age.

As an adult with responsibilities of my own, I always have my cellphone with me, even during meetings—set on vibrate, to be sure, but if I got a text from my wife saying that my son had had a fender-bender or that the washing machine was flooding the basement, I would certainly respond. In fact, I would probably get up and leave. Why should I expect my adult students to behave any differently?

Online learning group hears from MOOC pioneer

Online learning group hears from MOOC pioneer | Higher Education and more... | Scoop.it

The men and women who attend the Sloan Consortium's annual meeting have been toiling in the fields of online learning for many years, so they could be forgiven for having a wee bit of skepticism (if not resentment) about "MOOC mania," the hubbub of hyper-attention that has been paid in recent months to the massive open online courses developed by Harvard, MIT, Stanford and other elite universities.
"MOOCS will change the world and make the rest of higher education obsolete. Hyper-prestigious universities are driving all the change. Umm, I don't think so, folks," Jack Wilson, president emeritus of the University of Massachusetts system and Distinguished Professor of Higher Education, Emerging Technologies, and Innovation at the University of Massachusetts at Lowell, said during the conference's opening plenary Wednesday afternoon.
