Multitasking

Posted on: March 17, 2010

Lately I have been hearing a lot of teachers say that the reason they believe kids don’t get there work done in an efficient amount of time is because we multitask. We are doing homework, on facebook, and listening to music all at the same time. I personally can’t do work in silence.  Your in school most of the day, taking notes, being attentive, and its later that night you get to relax, listen to some tunes. Of course facebook can be more then exciting and can consume your energy for longer then you realize. I don’t think as students we shouldn’t multitask because there are going to be times in life, when we get jobs, when we will have 5 things to do, and no time to do it, and we are  going to need to figure out how to be successful. I think multitasking helps work ethic because it allows you to learn how to be focused on more then one thing at a time, but still provide quality work for all of it.
