Heavier IT users are taking on more work. This slows down the work they’re already doing, but because they’re doing so much more, they’re more productive. So simply looking at speed, they might at first appear to be slower, but since they’re multitaskers, they’re more productive overall. The lower IT users are doing tasks serially, but high IT users are doing tasks in parallel.

How IT Makes Johnny More Productive is an article based on a study of how IT affects workers’ productivity. Read this and then think twice about telling me to turn off my laptop during class. Thankyoukindly :D
