Laptops in lectures

Doonesbury on the value of laptops in lecture theatres:-

But when you think about it, is he really saying that it’s a good thing or a bad thing? Googling to find the answer to a (lecture-related!) question is way more constructive than checking your Facebook page, and is just the sort of thing that advocates of laptops in lecture theatres would be enthusiastic about; there’s a good chance he’ll remember the answer later, having looked it up himself. But then, at the end, that positive impression is undone by the revelation that he’s just checking his email. Trudeau sees both sides of the coin, curse him.
