Laptops are commonplace in university classrooms. In light of cognitive psychology theory on costs associated with multitasking, we examined the effects of in-class laptop use on student learning in a simulated classroom. We found that participants who multitasked on a laptop during a lecture scored lower on a test compared to those who did not multitask, and participants who were in direct view of a multitasking peer scored lower on a test compared to those who were not.

Manuela Bazen’s insight:

Dit onderzoek toont aan dan multitasken op een laptop tijdens college afleidt en tot een lagere score leidt in vergelijking met peers die geen laptop gebruiken.
