  2. I completely agree that multi-tasking is crap. This book by Dave Crenshaw was very helpful to me in understanding more about switch-tasking and in helping me to practice doing just one thing at a time: http://books.google.com/books/about/The_Myth_of_Multitasking.html?id=hPV3hfwa39IC

    The YouTube video was a little outdated, in my opinion, because it presumed that laptops and hand-held devices did not hold ‘content’ for the learner. When instructors/facilitators use technology effectively, we see how social media can enhance learning rather than distract from it (example: checking Twitter for updates about the course assignments not for tweets about the next social event on campus).
