“Most of the time multitasking is an illusion. You think you are multitasking, but in -reality you're actually wasting time switching from one task to another.”

Why Multitasking Doesn’t Work?

“Heavy multitaskers are actually worse at multitasking than most people.”

Experiment - cognitive & memory tasks with distraction:

  • Self-described multitaskers performed much worse than people who preferred to focus on single tasks.
  • Multitaskers couldn’t perform better on any elements of the test
  • Maybe chronic multitaskers are hyperdistractible people, but there’re worries that media multitasking might actually be destroying students’ capacity for reasoning

-> debate: should laptops be allowed in classrooms?

Attention:

  • is generated by conscious effort
  • is an unwilled effect of outside forces.
