Beware Students: Multitasking Muddles Your Brain

Multitasking Teens May Be Muddling Their Brains : NPR

I don't know if this was intentional, but NPR ran this story about the same time that students, including mine, are studying for their midterm exams. While multitasking may seem productive because you're doing more than one thing at the same time; in the long run, it makes you less productive because your activities don't have your focused attention.

So, don't forget to turn off your chat rooms, social networks, email, and TVs, and you'll be more productive.
