YOU MUST WATCH THIS TO CONTINUE.
The readings this week about Digital School and Ambient Awareness this week were really interesting to me because I would fail miserably in digital school. I find it interesting that a person can go online and study. To a certain extent I agree, I do almost all of my research online and writing papers would be miserable if I had to complete them by hand. However, reading online and interacting online with teachers and tutors would be the end to my GPA.
I cannot stare at a computer for hours on end without somehow distracting myself with social media and Netflix long enough to study biology. I have an amazing ability to procrastinate until I absolutely have to do something. I am the annoying product of the millennial generation. I have to say that learning online for me would get me in trouble. Even if it was entertaining.

A book in my hands has always held my attention in one place. I am all for trying different learning styles and as a tutor I know that there are many ways to explain the same thing and no way is better. However, there is something powerful about having the whole book in your hands and at your command, instantly.
