Cons of Technology in the Classroom
Seeking Synergy

It negatively changes how the brain functions...

“Scientists say our ability to focus is being undermined by bursts of information. These play to a primitive impulse to respond to immediate opportunities and threats.
The stimulation provokes excitement — a dopamine squirt — that researchers say can be addictive.
In its absence, people feel bored.”

“Your Brain On Computers, Attached to Technology and Paying a Price”
- New York Times
“Researchers say the lure of these technologies, while it affects adults too, is particularly powerful for young people. The risk, they say, is that
developing brains can become more easily habituated
than adult brains to constantly switching tasks — and less able to sustain attention.”
