Laptops in Classroom Interaction: The Dynamic Reach of the Laptoped Situation
PROCEEDINGS

Abstract

Laptops and other networked technologies are commonplace at university campuses. While a range of studies researches the negative effects of multitasking, screenpeeking and other laptop related side effects this article emphasize the situational impact of student-laptop interaction. Departing from Goffman's framework on unfocused interaction and Meyrowitz concept of middle region we explore the technology mediated, situated, social interaction. In particular focus is the non-spoken interaction emphasizing both student-laptop interaction and the social interaction within and around the classroom. The article expands the concept of middle-region by connecting it to different modes of interaction, which are labeled intra-, inter-, trans-, and extra-situational interaction. The research thus aims at providing educators and researchers with a model to advance their understanding of situations ingrained with mobile technologies. [For full proceedings, see ED557168.]
