Think you can effectively learn chemistry while emailing, text messaging, and surfing the web?   Research says your learning will be impaired.  Listen to this audio clip from National Public Radio (NPR).  Click on the listen button after opening the new page.  If you don't have a way to play an audio file, or would just rather read the information, this link to the Science Daily website has the same information.
