Abstract: Executive function skills (EFs) are correlated with academic outcomes. Given evidence that the use of personal digitial deivces increases student behaviors indicative of executive dysfunction (EdF), the current study sought to describe teacher familiarity with the construct of EF, if and how teachers are encountering the construct, and teacher ability to identify the behavioral indications of student EdF within high-tech learning environments. A cross-sectional, descriptive survey study of over 400 US teachers was utilized to address these questions and provide a foundation for future lines of inquiry regarding teacher knowledge and practice in supporting student EF within the high-tech learning environment.
