You can choose it from many different papers.
Topic: Can You Multi-Task?
Prior to this course and reading the chapter, what were your thoughts on multi-tasking, in general? Do you think you are a good multi-tasker? Why or why not? Now, try the experiment on p. 139 of your textbook in the “Try this Out” section. What were your results? For this thread, address the following:
· What were your thoughts on multi-tasking (in general and applied to yourself)?
o When driving, what might you be seen doing (e.g., eating, talking on the cell phone, etc.)?
o What about when studying (e.g., checking Facebook, cooking dinner, listening to music, etc.)?
· After completing the activity on p. 139, what were your findings?
· Apply the concepts of divided attention and focused awareness to your findings and/or experience while completing the activity. Cite the textbook.
· Do you think there are some tasks that are easier to multi-task on than others? If so, which ones? If not, why not?
Replies: It’s Public Service Announcement (PSA) Time!
In reply to one of your classmates, discuss your recommendations for what to do or not do while driving. Support your points with evidence from the textbook.
In reply to another classmate, discuss your recommendations for studying. What activities might be more or less distracting? Again, be sure to support your recommendation with evidence or concepts discussed in the textbook.
In both replies, be realistic (e.g., many of us will still eat on a long road trip). Instead of prescribing a specific list, consider recommending general principles to consider. Include points related to levels of consciousness and attention. Also support claims with textbook citations.
