Clearly we can’t yet tell what all of the ramifications are, but the pervasive technology in our lives has had an impact. These findings can’t be limited to students alone.
there is mounting indirect evidence that constant use of technology can affect behavior, particularly in developing brains, because of heavy stimulation and rapid shifts in attention.
Obviously teaching styles need to adapt, but its wrong to point the finger at teachers for short attention spans.
the findings could be viewed from another perspective: that the education system must adjust to better accommodate the way students learn
