I didn't notice (but my OH did when he sat in on my class) that my group of kids in the back who would disengage halfway through the lesson had no idea how to take notes, and were trying to copy everything off the slides word for word.

It turns out, "Pretend you're tweeting the info to your friends" is a really helpful bit of advice for contextualizing note taking,

Interesting article. I think my grandson is one of those multi-taskers.
