Densen, Rebecca Densen Soma S. Feldmar English 201 November 6, 2011 Multitasking or Distracting Research: An Annotated Bibliography My topic is multitasking using the Internet during class and while doing schoolwork. I will be arguing that multitasking while trying to do academic related tasks is not productive. I will show that it uses more time and is distracting. This will ultimately lead up to the debate of laptops in the classroom which I believe can work but only if used properly. I will show how multitasking between non-academic related sites and academic tasks can hurt one academically. Watkins, S. Craig. ""May I Have Your Attention?": The Consequences of Anytime, Anywhere Technology." The Young and the Digital: What the Migration to Social-network Sites, Games, and Anytime, Anywhere Media Means for Our Future . Boston: Beacon, 2009. 171-91. Print. The chapter “”May I Have Your Attention?”: The Consequences of Anytime, Anywhere Technology,” in the book, The Young and the Digital , by S. Craig Watkins, gives insight into the distractions of technology. This chapter describes how the allowance of different forms of technology in schools has changed overtime. The author went and talked to several principals and teachers to find out their opinion on their students having different personal media devices on them during class. He discusses the different technologies students are distracted by in high school and college. He says how the main one in college is different aspect of the Internet like Facebook and YouTube. Watkins goes on to discuss the experiences he has personally observed of this in his own class and other classes he has sat in on. He says although there are benefits to technology in rooms if not used properly they can be serious consequences. The credibility of this source is shown in several different ways. One is the fact that the book is published under the auspices of the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregation. The book also has an ISBN given by the Library of Congress. In addition to the bibliographical reference in the back of the book, Watkins uses personal experiences such as talking to teachers and his own classroom showing he is providing proof through his own experiences. In the bibliographical reference Watkins showed whatever source he used and the exact sentences, and words in each chapter he used them, giving them credit for the exact information he used all in his Notes section. He has an Index as well showing where all references to specific terms, people and other important elements are in the book. Watkins has added a description of his research and his methods to his book. He discusses talking to executives of major corporations like NBC, and Apple and getting their insight on his work. Watkins uses sources such as the NY Times, the U.S. Bureau of Census and many other reliable sources. Watkins himself is a participant in the MacAurthur Foundation Series on Youth, Digital Media and Learning. Because of the work he
