If we’re all being honest, if we’re not in a difficult class, we do not generally pay attention. When you are doing well (you know what is going on, and you have your desired grade) then I don’t think this lack of attention is necessarily bad. Now this is not a universal rule for every student, but I have broken down a small graphic in order to determine where your mind should be during class.
Remember that the whole point of not paying attention in class is so that you can utilize that designated time for something that is more relevant. If your class has computers (or you can have a computer) use that to do this side work. It is much easier to chime in when your head is up as opposed to looking at your cell phone. Cell phone work is particularly stigmatized by professors.
