The use of digital technologies in the classroom continues to rise as more students take lecture notes on laptops rather than pen and paper. In addition, digital technologies can greatly influence student behavior. Indeed, these devices can lead students to engage in unrelated online activities during a lecture. Obviously, these activities can have negative consequences on student learning. This chapter aims to provide an understanding to how digital distraction influences learners' information processing. First, this chapter will present how students process instructional material and explore effective strategies for high-quality learning. Second, this chapter will investigate how digital distraction disturbs information processing based on the cognitive load theory and contiguity principle. Third, this chapter will focus on the effects of digital distraction on student notes and learning. Fourth, this chapter will offer recommendations for curbing digital distraction.
