Student Distraction in a 1:1 Learning Environment
Tagsold, Jennifer Tingen
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, North Carolina State University
K-12 education research has become increasingly concerned with technology's impact on students' attention in the classroom, particularly with regard to laptop computers and other mobile devices (Gay & Hembrooke, 2004; Jackson, 2008; Mann, 2008; Kraushaar & Novak, 2010). While this classroom technology has created many positive implications for teaching and learning, few scholars have examined specific, practical approaches students and teachers use to avoid distraction. Through qualitative data analysis methods, this study examines the strategies used by students and teachers to avoid distraction in a high-tech learning environment.
