We focus in this episode about the tendency we all have, but specifically that young people have, to believe that we can efficiently multitask. While classrooms need to include variety and choice, the ideas that a single student cam effectively accomplish multiple disparate tasks concurrently is patently false. The problem has always existed in the classroom when we ask students to take notes, listen, and participate in discussion, but with the all of the tech students have within reach during their day the fracturing of attention becomes even worse. We talk about how to juggle multiple tasks and meet individual needs while maintaining a clear focus for students.
