Melvin C. Washington

Abstract
As the world becomes increasingly connected, the proliferation of social media and technology has caused today’s businesses to rely heavily on these tools to enhance productivity. This study examines the effect of laptop and tablet usage in the classroom, and its impact on student learning, motivation, and participation. It was conducted in the fall of 2016 in a Historically Black College and University (HBCU), in the eastern region of the United States where 531 respondents were surveyed with 514 usable surveys being completed, a response rate of 96%. The study will be helpful, not only in a college or university setting, but to business practitioners in training, and educating them on how to utilize technological tools appropriately.
