Multitasking Problems: Can Teens Really Learn While Multitasking?

The article written by Your Teen magazine touches on the impact of multitasking on teenage students. It touches upon the reasons why many teens want to multitask in the first place — it seems efficient. You are able to get down double the work in half the time. However, pediatricians have cited that the impact of the tasks being done is not integrative. In other words, it touches upon the fact that while one may have completed a great quantity of work, the quality of their work is subpar. It does not allow students to deeply focus and be mindful of the work they are doing which can, in turn, affect long-term recall and applications of the skills they are studying. Practicing to complete work in the absence of technology will help to boost the quality and recall of the work being completed. For more information on the topic, visit this website.
