In the Classroom

Use of Personal Electronic Resources

The use of personal computers, tablets, cell phones and similar personal electronic resources in classrooms should be limited to activity directly related to course content and note-taking as directed or permitted by the instructor. Use of electronic resources for other purposes (e.g., browsing the Internet, playing games, using e-mail streaming video, watching or listening to DVDs, etc.) is inappropriate to the classroom, and may provide a significant and unwanted distraction to those near the student using these devices.
