After examining “The Beloit College Mindset List

After examining “The Beloit College Mindset List: 2019,” I found two compelling touchstones for instance “Cell phones have become so ubiquitous in class that teachers don’t know which students are using them to take notes and which ones are playing a party” In addition to the upcoming class of 2019 “have never licked a postage stamp” that I found to be very significant in shaping the identities of many college students.
“Overall, 60 percent of students use their cell phones in class,” I feel that having a cell phone in class also leads to cheating on an assignment that cause students not to pay attention to a lecture although the student academic progress will then show how that student uses their phone during class which then will supports my answer of it being a negative influence.
On the other hand, I also find that students have never licked a postage stamp to be a positive influence due to the postage stamps being self-adhesive and documents being more digital to transfer.
