A survey from the University of Waterloo found that 68% of faculty don't like students using phones during class and 32% disapprove of laptops, saying that noneducational use of technology distracts from their teaching. Students, however, felt it was their choice to use such technology in class, with some saying they expected professors to be entertaining enough to earn their attention.
