The Case for Banning Laptops in the Classroom

這一篇大概是少數轉載跟法律沒相關的資訊了,這是關於課堂教室是否允許使用電腦的討論(按此閱讀!)推薦閱讀!以下這一段話,獻給大家:

Pop quizzes, of course, are not the best measure of learning, which is an iterative and reflective process. Recent Princeton University and University of California studies took this into account while investigating the differences between note-taking on a laptop and note-taking by hand. While more words were recorded, with more precision, by laptop typists, more ended up being less: regardless of whether a quiz on the material immediately followed the lecture or took place after a week, the pen-and-paper students performed better. The act of typing effectively turns the note-taker into a transcription zombie, while the imperfect recordings of the pencil-pusher reflect and excite a process of integration, creating more textured and effective modes of recall.
