Distraction, Multi-tasking and Time Management
Limited Capacity seats available

Is media multitasking an important modern-day skill or a disruptive and damaging habit?

Technology isn’t going anywhere. But multitasking — specifically media multitasking — is a concern. Some adults feel like kids may benefit from learning how to work with disruptions, since they’re going to need this skill for their entire lives. On the other hand, research shows that media multitasking can have a negative impact on school performance.

Evidence from psychology and brain research suggests that when students multi task while doing their schoolwork, their learning is far spottier and shallower than if the work had their full attention.

Learn how to create a short 30 second video book review using the Book Creator app. Even young learners can make a video book review which can be uploaded to a class site or blog and then accessed via a QR code.
