Students would rather give up coffee and sex than their smartphones
Students would sooner give up coffee, sex and eating out before their beloved smartphones, new research has found. The Telegraph reports.
Nearly a fifth of the 1,500 students surveyed by Aruba Networks spend over five hours a day online, and 65 per cent own three or more connected devices.
Seven in ten use their devices to access educational emails, while 44 per cent use mobiles to take notes during lectures.
About half even said they preferred to work ‘outside of normal school hours’, stating they worked more efficiently.
