Why Aren't They Paying Attention to Me? Strategies for Preventing Distraction in a 1:1 Learning Environment
Tagsold, Jennifer T.
Journal of Research in Education, v23 n2 p126-145 Fall 2013
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 teachers use to avoid distraction. Through qualitative data analysis methods, this study examines the strategies used by teachers to avoid distraction in a high-tech learning environment.
