How does technology distract students from studying?
Because students get lazier and lazier every time they use tehnology. That's kind of the reason kids are getting obese these days. No offense. They sit in the house all day wacthing television, playing game systems, playing on the computers, and listening to the radio all day.

Studying with Distractions It depends on what type of distractions you mean. If the distractions are small children than it has been my experience to wait until they ar…e in bed and asleep to study. If the distractions are roommates and then you might want to explain to them that you have to study and shut your bedroom door. What has always helped me is to study in the library at school even just for an hour at a time a few days before the exam and crash an hour the night before. Index cards/flash cards helped me and taking good notes helped me. I was trying to make a joke As the author of this question, I will preserve this as an example of a joke taken too seriously. The original question was "If you are 20 years old and your 12 year-old possibly sociopathic brother chases after your 3 year-old dog with a chainsaw what is the best way to study for third-year biochemistry mid-term exams?" The question was also solely under the Nonsense Questions FAQ (as all joke questions should be) until not one, but two people changed the topic I chose to the one they thought would best answer it were it a serious question: Education. Not only that, one of those people decided to change my question entirely, completely destroying the message I intended to give. (I later learned that serious questions are commonly put in the Nonsense Questions FAQ as a last resort, and this person was a superviser who had seen many instances of that.) I did this as a satire of the immense glut of questions that exist asking "What if your (age between 11 and 19)-year old (daughter/son/girlfriend/boyfriend/brother/sister/friend) is (sociopathic/a pathological liar)?" There are just way too many of these and making the person's age different doesn't really change the answer. Also, the original questions focusing solely on sociopaths and pathological liars enjoy a huge popularity rating and are a much better resource, although it would probably be a better idea to take the question to professionals in the first place. I had done something similar with the question "Is 31254pi a good IQ for a 476 gatch-old male Daskor living in the Triangulum Galaxy?", though I suppose the made-up words made it easier for people to tell it was a joke. It's not a real question. Please don't take it seriously. Props go to Zilly for his original answer, "Use the chain saw to chop your brothers head off!" -Syckls (and if you don't believe me, look in the question history)
Set a time for studying, and treat it like a job or another class you need to take. Don't skive off or slack off or find excuses to skip the work.Have everything you will need… for studying. If you constantly have to stop to find paper or a pencil or a dictionary or your textbook, that will really distract you!Turn off the TV and phone. Ditto internet chats, IMs, and other distractions.If you can concentrate better with music in the background, be sure that it is soft music, not blasting out of the machine so loud that it distracts you from the work.Read over your work. Make sure that you understand all of the terms; look up definitions if you need to, and write them in your notes for later. Make sure that you know what you are supposed to be learning in this session.If you find yourself thinking about other things instead of the work, tell yourself "Stop - I will think about that later!" and focus back on your studying.After you have done the work, review it to be sure that you understand everything, and check any problems to be sure they are correct. This is the part where it is nice to have a parent or another hard-working student to help you out.Give yourself some kudos for working hard. Most people take it for granted that you have to study - it helps you feel better about yourself if you recognize when you have been working hard, and pat yourself on the back for it! Further Answers: make sure your electronic devices are turned off (ipod, cellphone, laptop, etc)clean your study environment (throw away trash, magazines, makeup, etc)study in a quiet, peaceful environment (far away from tv, family, friends, etc)If you are tired you can have difficulty concentrating on your study; boredom can be caused by tiredness, so that something you might otherwise find interesting becomes dull.Be sure to get sufficient rest. If you have trouble sleeping, look into simple ways to help this; consult a doctor if you feel it necessary.You might find that simply taking a short break to catnap, daydream, or to walk around a little is all you need to refresh yourself. It doesn't sound like much, but it does work.Constantly pushing yourself to keep studying when your brain needs a break doesn't work!Try not to miss meals and do try to eat good foods. Fruit is always a good snack when you are studying. Don't overdo coffee in trying to stay more alert, and don't overdo alcohol in trying to relax - coffee and alcohol are bad friends when you have work to do!Get off the internet! But seriously, put yourself in a room/space without distractions like tv/people. Make sure you have all you need...all the books, highlighters, drinks, etc. so you don't have to get up. Put some headphones in and some music you can listen to without being distracted...so you can't hear what's going on around you!
Easy - study someplace without distractions. Study away from the computer, your cell phone, the TV, the radio, your favorite book, and anyone who is likely to talk to you or c…ause a distraction. Only listen to music if it helps you focus & improves your performance. Set a timer for, say, 20 minutes, & tell yourself, "Let's see how much homework I can get done before the timer goes off." Take a 15-minute break every 45-60 minutes, so you won't get tired (and distracted). Click on some of these links for more specific ways, too!
Teachers and students can incorporate technology into their studies in order to get a better understanding. Teachers generally use technology to reach different types of l…earners.
If you train them to be quiet then I think they won't distract you.
Not really. If their parents would supervise them in handling their cellphone and if parents would teach them the etiquette of using the phone.
If you do not attck you television with education you will never learn to survive.in other words, throw out your tv to better educate yourself.
no it helps the students in studies as some schools are stupid they give every work to do from internet
contacts with friends
having a personal computer for each student
its hard but just ask ur rents if u can go study in another room or just go ahead and do it at school

It depends on what they are doing on them... for instance, they could be texting they're friends about the newest movie in the cinema, or playing games, or they could just hav…e it with them to contact their parents in case of an emergency.hi what is your name.
Technology is addicting and distracting, just take personal experience. Have you ever had a time when you were on the computer, on the phone, playing games, watching TV, etc. …and time flew by? You were procrastinating and should have been doing something else? Were you ever multitasking and paid more attention to technology than what you should be doing? If so, then you have your answer, and from your own experience as well.
Depends what the situation is. If the teacher is trying to teach and the student is browsing the web, they are probably not paying attention to the teacher so it is a distract…ion. If the teacher gives instructions to browse the web while instructing in order for the student to better understand the material being taught, then it's not distracting.
Do** students still get distracted by electronics? Yes.
