AP: More Professors Ban Laptops in Class

Laptop_4 Interesting article today from the Associated Press:  More Professors Ban Laptops in Class, by Kathy Matheson:

As the professor lectured on the law, the student wore a poker face. But that was probably because, under the guise of taking notes on his laptop, the student actually was playing poker -- online, using the school's wireless Internet connection. The scenario is not uncommon in today's college classrooms, and some instructors want it stopped. So they have done the unthinkable -- banned laptops.
