The distraction block is intended to show how and for how long students take their mind off working on their studies. For this purpose the participants have received a block with sheets in five different colours and a cardboard bag for one week. Each colour stands for a distraction category: electronic devices, communicating with people, creative e.g. drawing, thoughts, working on something else. Every time a participant gets distracted while learning and notices it, he/she tears off a piece of coloured paper according to the distraction category. The size of the piece of paper corresponds to how long the participant has felt distracted. Afterwards the piece of paper is put into the paper bag, so that after the week all pieces of paper remain available.
