On March 6, Professor June Entman warned her first-year law students by e-mail to bring pens and paper to take notes in class.
"My main concern was they were focusing on trying to transcribe every word that was I saying, rather than thinking and analyzing," Entman said Monday. "The computers interfere with making eye contact. You've got this picket fence between you and the students."
