Managing distraction and attention in diverse cohorts : 21st century challenges to law student engagement
Matthew, Anne F. (2012) Managing distraction and attention in diverse cohorts : 21st century challenges to law student engagement. Queensland University of Technology Law and Justice Journal, 12(1), pp. 45-65.
It is imperative that we consider the use of current and emerging technologies in terms of the nature of our learners, the physical environment of the lecture theatre, and how technology may help to support appropriate pedagogies that facilitate the capturing of student attention in active engaging learning experiences. It is argued that a re-evaluation of pedagogy is required to address the tech-savy traits of the 21st century learner and the extent to which their mobile devices are capable of not only distracting them from learning but also enhancing face-to-face learning experiences.
