Just thought this post on Engadget was pretty interesting, especially the comments that follow. I know that this is a problem in just about any type of meeting situation where wifi and laptops are present. Which, of course, begs the same question that the podcasting of classes begs: If the content isn’t for the most part interactive and engaging (which, in theory at least, would preclude students from surfing the Web) why are we teaching it? I’m about ready to do an RSS workshop here at MICCA. Should I have them close their laptops when I’m talking???
Disruptive technologies indeed…
