Abstract

This investigation explored instructor clarity and classroom relationships as motivators for student in-class texting. Results suggest that nearly half of students text at least once per class session. Instructor clarity and perceptions of a connected classroom climate were negatively associated with overall texting frequency and frequency relative to other courses. Differences were found between those who reported never texting and those who text at levels lower than or comparable to other courses, but not with those who reported texting more frequently. © 2013 Copyright Eastern Communication Association.
