  27. 27. Three
  28. 28. Three The myth of multi-tasking is seductive.
  29. 29. Three The myth of multi-tasking is seductive. College students have “drunk the Kool-Aid” according to MIT psychology professor Shirley Turkle. They have accepted as truth the myth that multi-tasking increases our effectiveness. Recent brain research on multi-tasking shows that it harms effectiveness (PBS Frontline, “Digital Nation,” 2009). Read more: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/digitalnation/interviews/ turkle.html#4#ixzz1PZjV8tKD
  30. 30. “The best example of this over the past Id say fiveyears or so ... has been the cultural infatuation withmultitasking.And finally the experiments are coming in -- thecareful, controlled experiments about how whenyou multitask, theres a degradation of allfunction.” (Turkle, 2009)
  31. 31. “Did we need to really go through 10 years ofdrinking the Kool-Aid on the educational wondersof multitasking and the forgetting abouteverything we knew about what it takes to reallyaccomplish something hard?” (Turkle, 2009)
  32. 32. “Did we need to really go through 10 years ofdrinking the Kool-Aid on the educational wondersof multitasking and the forgetting abouteverything we knew about what it takes to reallyaccomplish something hard?” (Turkle, 2009)Something hard like learning and academicachievement.
  33. 33. Four
  34. 34. Four We are losing our ability to Ignore Irrelevance
  35. 35. Four We are losing our ability to Ignore Irrelevance According to Clifford Nass, professor at Stanford University and the founder of Communication between Humans and Interactive Media Lab. “ It turns out multitaskers are terrible at every aspect of multitasking. Theyre terrible at ignoring irrelevant information; Theyre terrible at keeping information in their head nicely and neatly organized; and theyre terrible at switching from one task to another.”Read more: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/digitalnation/interviews/nass.html#ixzz1PdpzXY5o
  36. 36. “And in fact, were starting to see some higher-level effects [ofmultitasking].For example, recent work weve done suggests were worse atanalytic reasoning, which of course is extremely valuable forschool, for life, etc.So were very troubled about, on the one hand, the growth, and onthe other hand, the essential incompetence or failure”. (CliffordNass, 2009)
  37. 37. In conclusion, from Clifford Nass, professor at StanfordUniversity and the founder of Communication betweenHumans and Interactive Media Lab:“One would think that if people were bad at multitasking,they would stop. However, when we talk with themultitaskers, they seem to think theyre great at it andseem totally unfazed and totally able to do more andmore and more.We worry about it, because as people become more andmore multitaskers, as more and more people -- not justyoung kids, which were seeing a great deal of, but evenin the workplace, people being forced to multitask, weworry that it may be creating people who are unable tothink well and clearly.”
  38. 38. Five
  39. 39. Five The Screen-Time culture of our college students is POWERFUL. (lol!) Most college students are deeply committed members of Screen-Time culture. When 371 college students media patterns were examined, Screen-Time culture overrode the influences of ETHNICITY and ACADEMIC differences among the students.
  40. 40. Latino Non Latino Ethnic 205 166 Regular DevelopmentalAcademic 229 142
  41. 41. Here’s what we studied: Types of media used Amounts of time devoted to media use Most importantly, students from the four groups were asked to identify their purposes for media use: for academic and entertainment (purposes of media use) Data were compared among four groups of students.
  42. 42. What the data disclosed:Media use is more similar than than it isdifferent among the four groups of studentsthat were examined.
  43. 43. TYPE and LENGTH of media use: College students’ media usage is similar for types used (cell phone, texting, TV, Internet, etc.) and lengths of time used by the students each day.ACADEMIC PLACEMENT: (Enrollment in Regular vs. Developmental courses) had no significant impact on media use patterns.ETHNIC IDENTIFICATION: No significant impact was found for ethnicity on college students’ media use patterns.
