Ireland’s leading celebrity academic blogger discusses a the theme of Laptops in class:
… the laptop is now a common sight in the lecture theatre or classroom, with an increasing number of students bringing them along and using them visibly. … Generally I am a supporter of the use of technology where it assists, and I see no reason why this should not apply to the laptop. …
Anyway, I am now bringing my own laptop along to meetings. It’s useful, and great when things get boring.
Ah, boring meetings. That explains a lot. It must be when he gets the time to write his blog posts :-)
