Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, December 11, 2014 8:36 PM

The premise seems to be that educators are incorporating technology as a defensive strategy to combat distraction. Interesting. I have to wonder if distraction is always "bad." I also wonder if one of the reasons students gravitate towards their devices is because they have them. . .rather than doodle in their notebooks and write notes to their friends or find other ways to manage their "distractions" which are often responses to battling boredom. Why write a whole note that could be collected by the teacher when you can text? But maybe we shouldn't assume that student distraction (read "not paying attention to what the teacher is saying") equals a lack of engagement. Maybe it's curiosity.
