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.

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.
Since the world is changing to adapt to the influx of technologies everywhere, teaching technology to students will help them obtain jobs in the future.Science courses are… taught due to the general education requirement these days requiring the basics of science and math, Future pursuing is at the student's hand but teaching the basics will prepare them for life.
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!
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.
No vision. Some students do not have a clearly articulated picture of the future they intend to create for themselves. Thus, they may take programs of study without a clear ca…reer goal or objective. In essence, they choose the wrong major.Lack of passion. Successful students work out of passion, a love for what they want to do, and recognize the importance of the benefit it will bring others as well as themselves. Without passion, study becomes a chore and not a method for achieving clearly defined goals. Lack of personal/work/school/family balance. What ever is going on in a student's personal life, will inevitably affect what's going on in school. Whatever is happening in school will affect what's going on in their personal life. A student needs time to be in class, and appropriate time for study. However, there must be time for family, friends, social activities, and time to just be alone. The key is keeping proper balance. Lack of taking advantage of student resources. There is really no reason for academic failure. Every college and university has an academic learning center where students can receive peer and faculty tutoring, without charge. Many students fail to seek help.Attending the wrong college or university. Some students accept admission into schools they are not familiar with. Thus, they become depressed with their surroundings. Student must be content with their school, its environment, and resources. This, in turn has a negative affect on their studies.Lack of maturity and discipline. Some students are just not disciplined and lack good organizational skills. They often fall under the pressure of their peers. Rather than using good discretion, they feel compelled to follow others (socially), when they really should be attending to their studies. Again, lack of appropriate balance.

We need to study them to gain a deeper understanding of our world.
Distractions are things that attract your attention and take your mind away from whatever you are trying to do. Here are some common distractions to our modern life: . phon…e conversations - this includes IM, texting, and cellphone headsets . loud music - background music should be soft enough so that you can barely hear it and not so loud that you keep listening and singing along instead of working . television . the internet - it is a proven fact that just having the internet up on a window in your computer will distract you, even if you're not actually doing anything on it! Your mind knows it's there, and keeps wanting to go play. . people around 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.
Change in student and teacher roles • Increased motivation and self esteem • Technical skills • Accomplishment of more complex tasks • More collaboration with …peers • Increased use of outside resources • Improved design skills/attention to audience [if you want to more knowledge about each point listed above you can ask me . .] AND HERE IS YOUR SECOND ANSWER ABOUT MEDIA EFFECTS ON STUDENT/STUDENT LIFE.. MAKE SURE THAT THE ANSWER WON THE FIRST PRIZE Effect of media on students elocution contest organised by the Swadeshi Jagarana Manch. I would like to draw your attention to a news item published in The Hindu on June 26, 1966, about a youth. A 14-year-old boy named Charles, influenced by a Horror film "Warlock", viewed on television, killed and skinned a 7-year-old playmate Jonathan Thimpson and then cooked the victim's flesh on a stove. Normally in Canada, children under 18 are tried in youth courts and their names cannot be made public. But Charles, due to the nature of the case, was tried in adult court. From the above example we can understand and estimate how much television influences children. Children are exposed to violent acts in the films and this tends to increase their aggressive nature. They begin to fight fiercely among themselves. A six-year investigation of 1,565 boys in London revealed that boys who were habitual viewers of violent programmes on television tend to commit significantly violent acts. Quite a few adolescents also indulge in eve teasing while imitating their favourite villains in the films. Bad films and television thus damage the present generation and would prove as a disaster for the future generation, undermining the moral fabric of society. Children also have an unconscious tendency to identify themselves with the models in their view. The artistes of television are also imitated. The imitation of good may be more but one per cent of bad creates nuisance in society, apart from causing psychological disturbances. Advertisements, mainly on television, also influence the children in many ways since the majority of them are fantasising and exploit psychological emotions. In the present era of competitive business, advertisements are almost inevitable to the companies to promote their products but some companies invest a huge amount on publicity. I do not mean that television should not be watched, but the viewing of such channels should be strictly restricted viewers over 18 years of age by implementation of suitable laws. We should also have self-imposed restrictions. Lastly, I would like to conclude that television is no doubt a boon for mass communication and entertainment. But the viewers of it should be aware of the darker side to it and take pains to exercise strict control over bad films and programmes.

Here are some things that distract people: physical - things going on around you:cellphones, IM, texting - anything that tempts you to talk instead of workinghaving the comput…er on - unless you're actually doing the work and not just having the internet on in the background, switch it off. Studies show that just having the internet THERE distracts you!having people talk in the background -- this includes TVhaving loud music or music with words -- any sort of talking makes you try to understand what's being said, and that's distracting mental - thinking about everything else except working. When you find yourself thinking about other things, just think "STOP" and go back to workenvironmental - being too hot or cold, having an uncomfortable chair,etc you get distracted because a chemical in your brain that making you focus deactivates
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 can be defined as the art of using scientific knowledge to build useful devices, inventions, machines, or structures of whatever type.
we are not really learning anything except how to become more lazy in life.....
You could say it ruins the life of the student by letting the computer do the work for him. Technology can also be used as an immediate reference. I do not beleive that techno…logy ruins the life of the student, I think that it makes the life of the student easier.
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)
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.
