Default Should Colleges Ban Classroom Laptop Use?

theodp writes "If you were a college prof, think you could successfully compete for the attention of a lecture hall of Mac-packing students? CS student Carolyn blogs that a debate has sprung up on her campus about whether it is acceptable to use a laptop in class. And her school is hardly alone when it comes to struggling with appropriate in-classroom laptop use (vendor/corporate trainers would no doubt commiserate). The problem, she says, is that the OCD Facebookers aren't just devaluing their own education mdash; there's a certain distraction factor to worry about. 'Students,' she suggests, 'should also communicate with each other more and tell their classmates when their computer use bothers them. I'll admit it, when I'm trying to pay attention to the lecture, even someone's screensaver in the row ahead of me can be a major distraction.'"pa href="http://www.facebook.com/sharer.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fnews.slashdot.org%2Fstor y%2F10%2F12%2F30%2F0413244%2FShould-Colleges-Ban-Classroom-Laptop-Use%3Ffrom%3Dfb" target="_blank" title="Share on Facebook"img src="http://a.fsdn.com/sd/facebook_icon_large.png"/a a href="http://twitter.com/home?status=Should+Colleges+Ban+Classroom+Laptop+U se%3F%3A+http%3A%2F%2Fbit.ly%2FfZjKC7" target="_blank" title="Share on Twitter"img src="http://a.fsdn.com/sd/twitter_icon_large.png"/a/ppa href="http://news.slashdot.org/story/10/12/30/0413244/Should-Colleges-Ban-Classroom-Laptop-Use?from=rss"Read more of this story/a at Slashdot./piframe src="http://slashdot.org/slashdot-it.pl?op=discussamp;id=1929322amp;smallembed=1" style="height: 300px; width: 100%; border: none;"/iframeimg width='1' height='1' src='http://slashdot.feedsportal.com/c/32909/f/530758/s/11176cee/mf.gif' border='0'/br/br/a href="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/90662127964/u/49/f/530758/c/32909/s/11176cee/a2.htm"img src="http://da.feedsportal.com/r/90662127964/u/49/f/530758/c/32909/s/11176cee/a2.img" border="0"//apa href="http://feedads.g.doubleclick.net/~at/9yJUzm4AYs7TBBJfFWHSfJTqK6Y/0/da"img src="http://feedads.g.doubleclick.net/~at/9yJUzm4AYs7TBBJfFWHSfJTqK6Y/0/di" border="0" ismap="true"/img/abr/a href="http://feedads.g.doubleclick.net/~at/9yJUzm4AYs7TBBJfFWHSfJTqK6Y/1/da"img src="http://feedads.g.doubleclick.net/~at/9yJUzm4AYs7TBBJfFWHSfJTqK6Y/1/di" border="0" ismap="true"/img/a/pimg src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/Slashdot/slashdot/~4/4FbIllwJ7GM" height="1" width="1"/
