No Laptops in the Classroom

John Mayer of CALI has authored an excellent new blogpost on the subject of Laptop Bans, which is one of those pesky law school topics that just won't go away.  John says "I have long believed that the issue of banning laptops in the classroom is not the real issue, it is instead an indicator of student attention/distraction."  He goes on to unpack the arguments used against the laptops and make a very cogent argument for eliminating lecturing as the main pedagogical method for teaching law.
