Title: THE EFFETS OF TECHNOLOGY TO THE STUDY HABITS AND LEARNING CAPACITY OF THE BSA-1A STUDENTS OF COLEGIO SAN AGUSTIN-BACOLOD
In today’s generation, technology has become one of the basic needs of society. It is essential; therefore involved in the everyday life of man. This development has brought a lot of advantages and is the greatest contribution to the improvement of every nation but due to this, man had become too dependent on it, to the extent that it is being debated as to whether, dependence on technology limits or integrates the capacity of one’s mind. Education is the most affected sector of technology specifically the performance of students. Through technology anyone can easily-access and gain information just by a flick of a finger and in any type of gadget one can get his hands on. Because of this, the learning capacity and study habit has been totally changed from the way it used to be. It affects the full-potential and performance of a student which brings disadvantages and slow productivity thus, a resolution must be made in order for technology not to be the major impediment in the hope of the nation, which is the youth.
