BBC: Pupils 'must look away to think'

A few days ago, the BBC reported: "Pupils should be encouraged to look away from their teacher when answering a question, scientists have found." Because it's more difficult to concentrate and think when looking at faces.

I know I have to look away from people when I need to think about what I'm going to say.

You have to wonder how much damage has been done by teachers etc demanding that students look at them when they answer a question because it's "not proper" if they don't.
