The idea that high computer usage correlates with lower educational achievement doesn’t surprise me a bit.
I heard on the radio a report of a study on memory which concluded that the more difficult a method you use to learn some information, the better you retention is of that material. Also, the converse is that the “easier” the learning method, the less you will retain.
So what’s new?
I really don’t think an article that long is required. Everything there has been said before. I think the whole thing is a bit of a non-story really. While this article may be more eloquent than others, and more detailed, it is essentially the same as countless others.
All they needed to say was:
Anything with a screen is instant.
Programmers are übercool people who make great, addictive stuff.
A large audience who like instant cool stuff is addicted.
Doing something constructive is far from instant.
Modern kids need to get out more.
School multimedia presentations are pants and won’t teach anyone anything.
Interactive whiteboards are essentially as useful as regular ones, but they have a slow response time.
BTW, I can remember a whole lot of what I see online. Whether that be graphical or textual.
