Texting in class has surpassed doodling, daydreaming, napping and note-passing. I guess this isn’t so surprising, it’s the same old problem, just a different medium.

It’s no surprise that high school and college students are obsessive texters. What alarms Wilkes psychology professors Deborah Tindell and Robert Bohlander is how rampant the practice has become during class: Their recent study shows that texting at the school has surpassed doodling, daydreaming and note-passing to become the top classroom distraction.
