Law Professor Bans Laptops in Class
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — A University of Memphis law professor has banned laptop computers from her classroom and her students are passing a petition against it.
Professor June Entman says her main concern is that students are so busy keyboarding they can’t think and analyze what she’s telling them.
…Student Cory Winsett says if he must continue without his laptop, he’ll transfer to another school. Winsett says he won’t be able to keep up if he has to rely on hand-written notes, which he says are incomplete and less organized.

    Whine whine whine, OMG! The sense of entitlement on the part of some people never fails to astonish and horrify me.
    For the record, I took all my notes in law school by hand, in notebooks, and that was only 5-7 years ago. The process of reorganizing my handwritten notes into shorter, more organized outlines on the computer was itself a very helpful part of studying, for me at least.

  2. Somehow, Dave, I knew you’d done it without any superfluous electronics at hand.
