Running an Empire

“When my son, James, was doing homework for school, he would have five or six windows open on his computer, Instant Messenger was flashing continuously, his cell phone was constantly ringing, and he was downloading music and watching the TV over his shoulder. I don’t know if he was doing any homework, but he was running an empire as far as I could see, so I didn’t really care.”
― Ken Robinson, The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything

This quote reflects the changing environments of our students, children, and also ourselves. Technology has created so many personal gadgets that we often use (dare I say too much?). Multitasking is prevalent in our lives and as teachers we need to be able to work with our students’ abilities and desires to multitask.
