It’s high time we put the most enduring myths about human behavior to bed, and see the mind—and the world—as it is.

What a waste of time and money. The last thing schools need is more high tech. "Solutions" that are just a stepping stone to more behavioral addiction.
Keeping electronic devices out of the classroom would be a start. A lot of kids are more or less professionally bored; that was true before the advent of smartphones, because to their tiny minds, it's "uncool" to be interested in books or in anything their teachers have to say. Now some of them are imitating the social misfits of the tech world, not wanting to interact with people or to experience a real environment when they could be playing with their electronic toys. Bringing more virtual reality into the classroom is just enabling their addiction. What's wrong with concentrating on the world?
I doubt that it will help with our obsessive smartphone behaviors.
It's what you do that matters.
It’s how you use it.
