In “Multitasking Can Make You Lose. . . Um . . . Focus” the author’s main claim is that while people may think multitasking is saving time it is not as beneficial as it may seem. She follows with the sub-claim that states “Although doing many things at the same time - reading an article while listening to music, switching to check email messages and talking on the phone- can be a way making task more fun and energizing,”you have to keep in mind that you sacrifice focus when you do this”(Tugend). This shows how multitasking is not as beneficial as it may seem while in the process. You are losing focus while doing this making your work less efficient than it could be simply doing the tasks one by one.
The impact of technology in business communication is significantly impacted by the use of different types of electronic devices. Organizations and businesses welcome the assistance and enhancement that this technology offers. Computers, smart phones, scanners, iPad, websites, and TV’s to name a few assist in the improvements in business communications. Technology houses all the necessary tools to enhance the business as a whole while assisting in the growth of that business. Technologies assist in the growth of workers being able to multitask and obtain a large amount of information within the business. Without technology impacting the growth of business communication society would be outdated and operated with an ancient manual system. Newer technology compliment businesses by way of faster
Although the responses differed, it quickly became clear that as students as well as active members of society we possess many devices for both work and pleasure. Powers also delves into this topic in the very first chapter as he talks about the concept of busyness. This fits into the role of technology in our lives because one reason we are so busy is all of the technology we use. The more devices we are connected to, the busier we feel we are. Although many students feel stressed out and too busy, most admitted that some of our busyness is within our control.
As I observe that concentration is necessary in lives. If we don’t concerned with our things, there will be a big loss for us. Technology is taking away concentration because everyone is stick to social media and they forgot their goals. I ruin my three years in college because I couldn’t concentrate on my studies. When I bought iPhone, I didn’t know how to use it.

So it is lead to forgetting the basic way of learning. For example, when the teacher gives students homework they are turning to use of technological devices to search for the answers, rather than return to the main book. On the other hand, we can use the tablet devices in a good way to avoid all these defects, by observing teachers or the parents for their children and students and put some guidance of using tablets, such as placing the appropriate time. Also, the families can close some apps which are unwanted. (Peter, 1997,
Chapter 3 is about attention and it teaches how to control your attention. Your automaticity is doing what it’s told and going though the part that you know. Your attention is doing problem solving. However, your attention has its limits, so, when it gets task for which it is not prepared, the whole operation can grind to stop. Multitaskers think multitasking is an effective way to work. But the fact is that your attention can’t be effectively multitask. Multitasking does not affect your automated task, but multitasking is not possible for unautomated tasks because it require your full attention in order to go well. So, when you have many tasks need to do which means your attention is crowded, clear out your attention and separated out the tasks. You can’t handle this all at once. Choose only one thing and attention on that fully and then deal with the next thing after that is done. Also, you
As I was sitting in a chair, I observed many people doing homework, drinking Starbucks, and playing games such as chess, or games on their phones. Many of these people were students, who had homework either on their laptops or their book and notebooks out taking notes. These students were in groups or alone but mostly in
Many critics may argue and say that technology in education is dangerous. It can waste a students’ time by getting him or her sidetracked by distractions they find online. However when students avoid technology in education, they have to spend long hours, days, maybe even weeks searching for certain information in various different books. Students that really want to learn will force discipline upon themselves. Even if students didn’t use technology, anything could easily distract them when studying.
Verna von Pfetten acknowledges in the article “Read This Story Without Distraction (Can You?),” that monotasking has its benefits although the environment has more to do with focusing than one might think. Everyone knows “multitasking” doesn’t actually exist. The brain cannot multitask. Instead, it switches from one task to another, meeting the demands of only one at a time. There is a cost associated with this switch, resulting in brain power being eaten away causing productivity to slip.
Whether that is texting, on social media, playing games, watching videos, etc. That is the main distraction for the students. The cartoon picture Shelved by Roz Chast. The drawing is a male sitting on the couch, a laptop resting on his lap, and he has earbuds in. Behind him, there are about five to six shelves filled with books, who have angry faces on.
Although Kahn is convinced that a cell phone ringing in a class will leave the surrounding students “significantly impair[ed],” one might disagree about the level to which other students even notice (197). Be assured, there have been moments during class discussions where phones have gone off and no other student has noticed. Though I agree with much of what Kahn stands for, I am not persuaded that a ringing phone leaves students with such impairment. The average student can decide the amount to which such an event will influence their attention and be able to readjust if the event skewed them off course. While a cell phone in a classroom has the potential to distract one from the material being taught, the lack thereof has helped seen an increase in grade and an increase in extra credit
Technology: A Distraction in Life New modern life circled with technology gadgets. Technology has been progressing quickly which has become an important part in our lives which is harmful for our body. Many people have been using these stuff to communicate with each other, play games, listen to music, or discover a new culture. However, it may also have some positive impact in which it can help students in their daily life to get some information out of the internet to solve their homework or other things. For example, adults use these instruments at work and students at school.
