...a laptop?This week in the Washington Post David Cole, a law professor at Georgetown University, wrote about why he has banned laptops in his classroom. After the first six weeks of class he did an anonymous survey; 80% of his students said they were more engaged in class without a laptop, and 70% said they preferred not having a laptop. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/04/06/AR2007040601544.htmlProfessor Cole is not the first professor to ban laptops; at every school I've visited there have been a few law professors who do not allow laptops in class. This is my question: if doing well in law school is really about gaining as many small advantages over your classmates as possible, should you use a laptop? If you are truly more engaged without it, should you opt to leave your laptop in the bag? Discuss.
Meh.Some people can sit in front of a computer without surfing the internet.And if it's such a problem why did all law schools start putting wireless internet in all the classrooms?
From the handfull of law classes I've been to, it doesn't seem like it would be too hard to figure out what you should be typing/writing down...
