Teaching students how to manage digital distractions
AUGUST 4, 2020
When I was a teenager, I had a dumb phone that I mostly used for emergencies. By the time I got to work with teenagers, they had sophisticated devices through which they could even fact check me during classes. That’s not to say that my education was better than theirs, or that my generation was less distracted. It was just different. Nowadays, as it was back then, distraction remains the top enemy of classroom learning.
