What are the top distractions for students in class? Texting and reading email. Find out about these and other educational experiences students have with technology in new interactive Tableau dashboards that depict results from undergraduate students surveyed in 2015 and 2016. The results offer a current picture of how technology affects learning at the University of Washington’s Seattle campus. The survey covers device ownership, attitudes toward technology, distraction factors, lecture capture, and resources and tools students would like instructors to use more often.
