Students think they can do many things at a time and do them all well. There are many studies and articles out that contradict that belief. A recent article (1/24/2015) can be found here was based on research conducted at West Point. This article (11/15/16) compares distracted web surfing to second hand smoke.
What do you think? Can you do homework while browsing twitter? Can you read and listen to your favorite band at the same time? Read the article that goes with this survey.
For this assignment ONLY, you can have out your phone in class. Read the article and answer the questions with the survey just like you would do it for an assignment from home. Let’s see how you do with the questions and compare your results with other students.
When you are finished, post your thoughts about this topic on your Weebly blog page. Do some research and find another article that will give evidence for either pro or con the effects of multi-tasking (or both). Put this link on your weebly page.
