Do You Need a Letter of Recommendation from Me?

 

PUT DOWN THE DEVICE! Wherein I try to convince you that multitasking is mythical, and makes you stupid.

Texting in class lowers your grades (and not just because it makes the instructor grumpy)

Evidence that writing your notes longhand on paper improves your brain, and increases your understanding of your classes

No, you AREN’T multitasking

Your brain reads text on paper differently than it reads text off a screen
