Un-adopters

An increasing number of college professors have become un-dopters of technology this fall.

Researchers have known for a long time that we aren’t mentally programmed to switch back and forth between information streams. So after years of allowing and even encouraging students to use laptops in classrooms, WiFi is being turned off.

I’m waiting to see how quickly this trend drops down into elementary and high schools.
