Can you imagine what a student thinks when trying to study? How hard it can be for some to really stay focused on their learning materials when there are so many distractions surrounding them? Online ads and social media channels can be greater reasons for procrastination than the fridge or noisy roommates. Why? Because they demand a minimal level of energy: it’s way easier to snap a picture of one’s notepad and desk, capturing it with studying hard, do not disturb, posting it on Instagram and also tweeting it, instead of getting up and walking to the fridge.
Being online while studying can be very distracting. And the ironic part is that teachers’ requirements can actually be the cause for students to be connected to the internet when learning. How else could they do a serious research for a paper, or find other useful information?
