Haven't posted on here for a while.
I'm in my First Year of university now,
And i find that i have lectures which i know back to front, so i occasionally put on some music quiet enough so that i can still hear and lecturer, and take down notes from slides.
And i find that this speeds time along.
I was wondering if anyone else ever did this,
And if it didn't distract your learning, even if it was a lecture you didn't know much about.

Depends on how you learn really, if you can listen to the music and write the notes you need then good for you. A lot of the guys do it but usually with games on their laptops/phones.
Personally, the music would be a distraction and I would probably end up singing along without realizing I was in a lecture

If I tried to listen to music on my iPod, it would be spotted in 2 seconds (my lectures have only 40 people, if that, in them)!
My lecturers would probably find it very disrespectful, as they're going to the effort to speak when they could very easily have not bothered.
I wouldn't be able to concentrate anyway.

I probably wouldn't do that, as I could just pull the slides of off Moodle or whatever it is... quite disrespectful to the lecturer too.

I find that highly disrespectful.

What's the point in turning up if you're not going to concentrate?
