Multitasking: Nonproductive Yet Lingering Myth
|Above figure copied from Driving MBA|
When I look at a classroom and I see a teacher who is so worried about what is going at home, I can imagine what this actually does to learning inside a classroom. If a society is unable to support a teacher's need to support his or her family, what kind of performance are we to expect inside a classroom. When a teacher does other activities totally separate from teaching in order to augment one's income to support a family, should we really expect 100 percent? It does not make sense to expect teachers to be capable of multitasking when no one really is. I guess the answer is simple - We do not really care.
