The consensus from one corner of the science world is that Students Are Better Off Without a Laptop In the Classroom. Understandably, laptops are good outside the classroom for things like homework, research, and cleanly composing documents and other materials. Yet, it is possible the general mystique around laptops for education was oversold. Another pebble thrown into the ocean of the experimental runaround to do nothing. Again, another case of the dangers of unfettered marketing of concepts with little benefit to most people’s future.
