For Better Learning in College Lectures, Lay Down the Laptop and Pick Up a Pen – by Susan Dynarski

Do computers help or hinder classroom learning in college? Step into any college lecture and you’ll find a sea of students with laptops and tablets open, typing as the professor speaks. With their enhanced ability to transcribe content and look up concepts on the fly, are students learning more from lecture than they were in the days of paper and pen?

And the Emmy goes to… Apple, DJI, Microsoft and Comcast

Begin: WordPress Article Content A handful of tech companies have just been given Emmy awards for a variety of behind-the-scenes accomplishments. Yeah, I didn’t know it was a thing either! Well, I kind of knew — as with the Oscars, it’s the “Sciences” part of the “National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.” They just don’t play it up a lot.
