Synopsis: This week on “Learn Me Something,” Aaron and Rich delve into digital distractions. They’re unavoidable, but it’s how we choose to balance our time and attention that can make a difference in our learning and productivity.

Students spend nearly 21% of class time using a digital device for an unrelated activity like email or social media, according to preliminary research conducted by Barney McCoy, associate professor in the College of Journalism and Mass Communications at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln. They also check a digital device 10.5 times per class day on average.
