Students’ at-home media choices may negatively impact in-class performance, says a new study from Common Sense Media, an organization that provides media information to parents. 71 percent of teachers surveyed believe students’ watching TV and using video games, texting, and social networking have hurt students’ attention spans “a lot” or “somewhat.” 59 percent believe media use has hurt face-to-face communication with others, according to the report “Children, Teens, and Entertainment Media: The View from the Classroom.”
