Eyes Front

The debate about laptops in class seems to crop up every year. And right on schedule, here it is again. Interesting that the problem, if indeed there is one, doesn't seem to be related to wireless internet access per se. Rather, if the professor quoted in the story is to be believed, the problem is that even when students are taking notes, pecking away furiously on their laptops, they aren't truly participating in the discussion or retaining the information presented. Agree? Disagree?
