This study aims to answer these questions:
1. How technology affects the students' academic performance?

3. Do students use technology to learn?
4. Do students use technology in a proper way?
5. How students use technology to support their vision of learning?
C. Significance of the Study
This part of this study will provide brief description on the various significances of the study given the three categories Educational, Technological and Economic.
To students. The proposed study serves the students as their reference or guide in expanding their knowledge in order to help them in school. So that students may able to maximize their resources and use it properly.
To teachers. The proposed study will help teachers to have more interesting and active lectures. Technology can make the lesson more interesting for the students. To make lectures visual is much more interesting than to orally explain it.
To future researchers. The proposed study will benefit and help the future researcher as their guide. The study can also open in development of this study.
This study will be helpful to the academy in a way that it will provide better method of technology usage. Therefore, research which explores the advantages of such technology will help to raise awareness among the students who are unacquainted with its potential applications and benefits within their educational setting.
D. Scope and Limitation
The scope of our study is for modern technology that changed has changed our life as student and changed the world of education.
