Will new technologies enhance or detract from time management in the classroom?

This week on Tech Watch with Susan Rocco, Pathways COO Mary Manzo discusses technology in the classroom and how it could affect future time management skills for students.

In the journal Educational Psychology, it was found that students who had cellphones or laptops present while a lesson was being taught scored half a letter grade lower at the end of the semester. Whether in elementary, high school or college, technology can be a distraction, but at the same time has great advantages — should the devices be utilized properly.

For college students who are dealing with the excitement and distractions of college life, it’s becoming increasingly more difficult to maintain their schedule and develop good study habits. Time management becomes critical and is something that needs to be developed and improved over time to be successful. This can be overwhelming at first, especially for incoming freshmen.
