Background Tasking; Switchtasking

Guess what? You’re not actually multitasking. You’re really doing one of two things: background tasking or switchtasking! In this video, Dave Crenshaw, author of “The Myth of Multitasking,” guides you through an experience designed at helping you gain first-hand knowledge of switchtasking and its related costs.
