Multitasking with Smartphones in the College Classroom
Grinols, Anne Bradstreet; Rajesh, Rishi
Business and Professional Communication Quarterly, v77 n1 p89-95 Mar 2014
Although the concept of multitasking itself is under debate, smartphones do enable users to divert attention from the task at hand to nongermane matters. As smartphone use becomes pervasive, extending into our classrooms, educators are concerned that they are becoming a major distraction. Does multitasking with smartphones impede learning? Can they be used to enhance learning instead? This article reviews current literature, provides suggestions for further investigation, and proposes an approach to incorporate smartphone multitasking in the classroom to enhance learning.
