Webinar Research Roundtable: Technology and Student Distraction

Technology and Student Distraction

In one survey at six different universities, college students reported using their phones an average of 11 times per day in class.

The natural habitat for a child is the creative world… being outside, making shapes out of clouds, having fun, throwing a ball against the wall. It’s not about sitting in front of a screen.

Weekend Ed. Quote ~ March 23
