Why Teachers Should Be Preparing For A Multi-Screen Classroom

You don’t need an infographic to tell you that your students (and probably most of your friends, colleagues, and family members) have their nose pointed towards a screen more often than not. While I’m definitely not above chastising my dinner mates for getting too cosy with their phone instead of interacting with everyone at the table, I wouldn’t necessarily transfer that same open shaming technique to a classroom. Studies show that so much of our daily media interactions are screen based – 90%, in fact. So while your inclination may be to have students focusing on one thing at a time to make sure they’re getting all they need to out of an activity, maybe you should think again.
