Texting In Class May Distract Students, But It Could Also Help Them Learn

Texting In Class May Distract Students, But It Could Also Help Them Learn | Tech for teachers | Scoop.it
Gone are the days when kids would get in trouble for passing notes in class. Today’s youngsters are much more sophisticated, technologically speaking, than those who grew up in the days of flip phones and CD players — let alone those whose only access to a phone growing up was a spin-dial one. This means there’s a lot more texting, tweeting, and Facebooking on smartphones in your average high school or college classroom than ever before.

Does this also mean that kids today are way more distracted by the bombardment of information reaching them via their tablets and iPhones? A new study out of the National Communication Association wanted to find out whether increased smartphone and social media use in class impacted student learning — and what they found was that it had both negative and positive effects.

In the study, researchers analyzed kids who were using phones in class to respond to text messages — both relevant and irrelevant to the class material. They measured the type of messages and the frequency of them, and found that students who were texting about the material actually scored higher on multiple choice tests about the subject than those who were texting about non-class related things.

Eric Moss's curator insight, June 29, 11:02 AM

It is time to make decisions on what we want to do for kids who are going to be on their social media devices during class time. After looking at this insightful article, I agree that being able to discuss class work with other students while class is in session is only going to help. Interestingly, the study showed that discussing materials through social media lead to greater test scores. I think that a big problem is that kids are trying to hide their devices while in class, and this is the part that is distracting them. Maybe if we implemented new technology, which allowed for students to have a built in I pad in his or her desk, allowing group chats, and online public discussions to take place, this would be beneficial. Staying on topic, posting to friends and family about what you are learning is only going to lead to a better understanding of the topic. Changing what many might view as a negative action, to a positive idea might be key when thinking about the future of our education system, and all of the social media available. Higher grades will be the reward, while lower grades will be the consequence for kids who reject using this new feature the proper way.

JoanHughes's curator insight, June 30, 5:58 AM

This article gives food for thought.  Are mobile phones being used to engage learners or do teachers see it as a distraction?

5 Common Myths about Teaching with Technology

5 Common Myths about Teaching with Technology | Tech for teachers | Scoop.it

"The ‘disruptive’ label is commonly associated with technology, one which has urged educators to look in the opposite direction. While the term may not hold a place in education, the tools certainly do. Technology within the classroom encourages a new approach to pedagogy, facilitating a more collaborative, engaging and creative workspace, with no cause for distraction. It’s time for educators to re-evaluate their understanding of technology, as a tool that can bring harmony to a class, rather than pose a ‘disruptive’ threat."
