Some professors, concerned that their students are too wired to e-mail, Facebook, and other new media tools, are assigning their students to take a "fast" from technology for 24 hours, The Star-Tribune of Minneapolis reported. Some faculty members are calling for students to be offline for just a day, while others have been more ambitious, with one professor asking students to refrain for five days from using any gadget not invented by 1984. Some students last only an hour or so.
