Dear colleagues,
Can you tell me if the word distractions is ok in this sentence:
Kids putting in long hours on their "distractions" will give less attention to assignments and may be irritable when they are away from them. 
The text is about computers and the expected answer is devices
Thank you for your help.
Have a nice day.

these devices are distractions from what may be important. So, yes,  the word does work in the sentence.
