It’s the Monday after Thanksgiving break, and I thought a cartoon was in order! 🙂 I received a link to this Doonesbury cartoon from Laurie Foster here at GRCC.

Doesn’t this look familar? Do you have students in your classes that use their laptops and “multitask” during your lectures? What are your thoughts about laptops in the classroom?
While I’m a proponent to providing students with the tools they need to succeed and while I’m in favor for laptops in the classroom, I must admit that professors do reserve the right to moderate their use. Just as they would with doodling, talking, passing notes, eating, using cell phones and the like. I suppose what I’m saying is that the laptop is just another tool that can be a significant asset to the learning process and shouldn’t be banned entirely from the learning process.
