You're Distracted. This Professor Can Help.

You're Distracted. This Professor Can Help. | Mindfulness | Scoop.it
David Levy's course at the University of Washington puts technology in its place—in the control of students. "Say a professor presents new concepts. To understand the ideas, students need to link them to things they already know, creating a network of associations that Mr. Mayr describes as "a rich knowledge structure." That happens only if they pay attention and think about the lesson. If a student listens to the professor with one ear while surfing Facebook, Mr. Mayr says, "I'm 100 percent certain that that critical process of creating new knowledge structures is not happening in the student's head." What's tricky is that someone who does surf the Web while listening to a lecture will very likely have the impression of doing just fine, Mr. Mayr says. That's because our minds lay a trap. All content in long-term memory is represented in two ways: "as a sense of familiarity on the one hand, and whether or not you truly understand it." People often mistake familiarity for understanding. They open the textbook after getting home from a lecture, and they recognize the material. They think: I get this. Then they take a test—and bomb it.
