In a story on Silicon Valley corporate meetings going gadget-less, an LA Times report notes in passing that 75% of law professors at UCLA shut off wireless Internet in their classrooms. Anyone think this is worth trying at Northwestern? Students, would full-scale uprisings break out?
I wonder if there’s any hard data on the effects of Internet usage during lecture classes. For example, it would be interesting to compare class performances pre- and post-installation of wireless internet in the University.
