The goal of this blog is to provide contemporary Educational knowledge and learning through the means of technological interaction and social language.

Reflections 13

This Time magazine article, “Wired for Distraction”, highlights the effects that overuse of technology has on student’s brains and learning capabilities. The article suggests that parents set rules to ensure that children set aside time to unplug from technology. The continued distractions and constant multi-tasking leads to lack of focus on tasks and results in unsatisfactory educational performance. I believe that technology should be a part of everyone’s lives; however, students should not commit their entire life to a virtual world.
