Abstract

According to a recent survey (McCoy, 2016), students are more distracted than ever before due to their digital devices. In fact, students admitted that they spend about 20 percent of their time in class using devices for activities unrelated to academics such as text messaging, emailing and checking social media sites. Should faculty limit the use of such devices, create social media policies or ban technology all together? What are the benefits and challenges to such use? Find out what the students and faculty at UT Tyler think about this issue.
