After seeing this image, it raised the question about whether laptops should be permitted in college classrooms. This article presents both sides of the argument – students should be allowed as laptops are more efficient and interactive; however, students should not be allowed due to their source of distraction and the fact that students often learn better when handwriting notes. I would love to hear your thoughts regarding:
- Whether you think the drawbacks outweigh the benefits or vice versa.
- How have your experiences in the classroom affected your opinion?
- Are there certain studies or research articles that prove one way or the other?
- If laptops are permitted, how does this affect those who cannot afford one?
Make sure to consider both the student and lecturer/professor perspective!
