In a world where we are bombarded by multiple stimuli, how do we teach students to focus?

When is multitasking a requirement?

How do we determine which is needed for a given task?

Todd Oppenheimer suggests that schools have engaged in a computer frenzy and should instead be teaching students: history, how to write, how to think, how to communicate with each other, how to be reliable, and how to follow a line of reasoning.

Do you agree or disagree?
