Don't compare Apples with Googles! Ha, ha!
Seriously: Thanks for the reminder. You are right, it is the same old story. I wake up every couple of months to report something "subversive" (the last one being, "From screen to brain, some bad news" https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=374292). This time, I happen to listen to Prof. Manfred Spitzer (of Digital Dementia fame), who brings tons of data against the screen at young age and then I read this /. article that there is no proof of the alleged positive effects of the screen in learning. What are we doing?
P.S. For those who don't know him, Prof. Spitzer is German, an unusual German in his emotions. He is very much reserved/careful in English, for obvious reasons, which is still a pity. Here's an example for the English speaker: "Talking Germany: Manfred Spitzer, Neuroscientist" https://www.youtube.com/watch?foo=bar&v=4Ueg55KUQa0.
