One of the greatest detractors from the ‘flipped classroom’ model is the lack of home computer access for some students (Roehl et al., 2013; Kachka, 2012; Nielsen, 2012; Fulton, 2012), something which needs to be addressed to ensure the efficacy of the ‘flipped classroom’ model. However, this may be of small concern in the digital age, in which the ‘Millennial’ generation have a preference for the use of technology to enhance traditional learning (Lage et al., 2000). Information and Communication Technologies (ICT’s) are a large part of the current generation’s lifestyle, and include such modern-world aspects as constant connection to information, as well as connectedness to sociability (Roehl et al., 2013). Considerations such as these highlight the fact that teachers should be aware of the benefits of implementing ICT use and multimodality into the curriculum.

The article “Colleges grapple with cheating in the digital age” written by Carla Rivera, the author claims “With the ease of technology and widespread sharing that is now part of the collaborative culture, students need to recognize and be reminded that it is dishonest to appropriate the work of others”. This signifies that because of the use of technology it has become easier to cheat and that now days technology has become a key factor in the act of cheating. But students also have to understand that it is incorrect to take credit of work that is not theirs. Rivera also writes “68 percent of undergraduates and 43 percent of graduates students admit cheating on tests or written assignments”. This research proves that there are many students who have cheated on their school work.
Are our communication skills declining due to the vast internet use? Technology has given individuals the ability to do things that would otherwise be considered impossible. However, while technology has provided the ability to communicate with people halfway across the world and opened a comfortable space for teens, it is believed to have affected not just the interaction among others, but furthermore writing skills.

Which supports the argument of Karlovac and Buell regarding homework disrupts family life and becomes the main factor in the decisions of students to leave school. Specifically, in their article Karlovac and Buell use Jensen’s research in order to prove the importance of physical movements in learning instead of assigning homework to children.

Arden and Adena, both took surveys of “639 students in both types of classes.” It was easier to that the students taking the face-to-face classes cheated more than the students taking online classes.
In this essay, the author Nicholas Carr claims that multitaskers are less comprehended, less creative, and less productive comparing with those who do one thing at a time.
