Abstract: The paper reports on the results of a survey investigating teachers’ (including school librarians) and administrators’ experiences with K-12 students’ digital behavior during hastily arranged and prolonged online instruction under the COVID-19 pandemic. Posted to public and professional organization message boards and listservs and sent out via professional networks, the survey asked teachers and administrators to contemplate students’ behavior during online interactions and instruction. The findings of this research indicated that teachers felt that students were unfocused or distracted during class, students were not consistently turning in work, or not participating in online instruction, and that students were misusing digital technology, wasting class time.
