Digital Distraction: Impact of Technology on Student Learning

Dec 4, 2012

City Visions explores the ways that digital media use by school-aged children may be changing how they perform in the classroom.  Are students losing their ability to focus as a result of spending so much time online? Or does digital entertainment provide positive tools to boost students’ creativity and motivation? Host Joseph Pace and guests discuss a study that examined these questions and more.
