Darren Barefoot found out the other day that few students are using laptops in classrooms – at least in English classes in Canada:
I was recently chatting with an English professor from a Canadian university, and happened to ask how many of her students took notes with laptops in class. â€œOh, one or two,â€ she replied.
Really? Isnâ€™t it 2007? I havenâ€™t been in a university classroom for a while, but I kind of assumed that, regardless of faculty, nearly everybody would have laptops open.
I think the fact that it’s an English class has something to do with this. Additionally, I bet the classroom has around 4 power outlets, so it’s probably not the most laptop friendly environment.
