Beserra, Vagner; Nussbaum, Miguel; Oteo, Macarena – Journal of Educational Computing Research, 2019
When performing a task in the classroom, it is essential to place the focus on learning. In the classroom, it is possible to distinguish between time spent by students on-task and off-task. The former is the time in which the student is focused on the learning task; the latter is the remaining time in which they focus on other activities.…
