4. Students are turning idle (and bathroom) time into study time

A quarter of those surveyed said they now use idle time at work or school to study on their smartphones. That number is even larger when you account for idle time in other locations.

Nearly 20 percent said they use their phones to study while commuting, 13 percent said they study while eating, and 5 percent said they use their phones to study while exercising.

Ten percent of the students admitted to studying on the phone while in the bathroom.

5. Students are no longer getting out of bed to study

Another favorite place to study? In bed.

Whether it’s before or after sleeping, 22 percent of surveyed students said they use their smartphones to study without leaving the comfort of their mattress.
