Most of them were using smartphones, prepaid cards for their internet subscription which they sometimes experienced high-frequency signals, and were very proficient in their basic computer literacy. Along with cognition, students often experienced difficulties focusing their minds. The main problems in affective were feelings of isolation and lack of interaction.
