Is being connected 24/7 aiding our ability to learn or are we all suffering from 'inane information overload' as a consequence?

There can be little doubt that services delivered over the internet offer tremendous possibilities to aid learning and make it easier for us all to stay in touch. But with such access being increasingly available on devices such as phones, tablets and even ipods - are we a little too well connected for our own good? Is it possible the technology we think is helping us learn is also a massive distraction when trying to study? Is it getting out of hand and approaching an addiction?

- Do you wake up in the night and find yourself checking your email, Facebook or Twitter?
- Do you announce your every move and thought? Could you stop if you tried?
