> Hi All,
> 
> Does anyone know the research on students using laptops in college 
> classrooms? Some of my undergrad students found in a survey 
> that 50% of 
> the students in the sample said they would not use a laptop 
> in class if 
> the Internet was not available. 50% said they only brought laptops to 
> class for entertainment purposes. (Not sure how the individuals 
> overlaps in each case, but have asked the students to do that 
> analysis).
> 
> I'd like to follow up and find out about any larger 
> surveys/qualitative 
> studies on this topic.
> 
> Thanks.
