“On average, (students) report spending 0.8 hours with a tablet,” reported. “And they’re spending 3.6 hours a day with their cell phones. … By contrast, they’re spending less time with computers, TVs, handheld gaming devices, and e-readers. ”

Students can use this time spent on their smartphones and tablets to study for classes.
