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.
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.
