Further, attention is a teacher’s most precious commodity, and no teacher wants her students’ attention focused on messaging with friends outside of class [106]. There are other reasons we may not want the most general form of radio-frequency Internet connectivity as currently conceived for classroom-based applications. For moderately loaded shared media networks, contention-based access to the medium by individual nodes is typically most efficient. In systems where collisions can be detected by the sender (such as in wired Ethernet) this efficiency holds up even to highly loaded situations.

ROSCHELLE ET AL. 3 Probeware Of all the instructional technologies for science classes, the technology with the longest track record is that of electronic probes and sensors and associated software (hereafter, “probeware”). Used in classrooms, probes instantaneously gather and graph data from live experiments [74,78]. It is hard to overstate how important this is in classroom learning. Before probes were readily available, students typically gathered data in class, graphed it at night, and analyzed it the next day.
