texting in class

If You Text in Class, This Prof Will Leave from Inside Higher Ed a couple of days ago is a microcosm of issues salient to professors, students, and researchers in higher ed.  It’s hard for me to formulate a response, because there’s clearly a lot going on there – discussions of race, professor authority, student behavior, students as consumers, and the ways in which the changes in the social and technological landscapes manifest themselves in the classroom especially in terms of evolving social and cultural norms – and it’s difficult to disentangle them.  Which, I suppose, serves as an excellent illustration of the fact that what looks on its face to be a simple issue of technology in the classroom actually has a lot going on under the surface.
