How Technology Influences the Academic Performance of Students in University?

Introduction

Based on the diverse technological changes that are taking place around the world, the incorporation of technology in education has been inevitable. Among the significant technological devices that have been adapted in learning institutions are laptops. Tablets, and smartphones. The purpose of the articles that will be highlighted in this paper will give insight into how digital devices have positively or negatively influenced academic performance. The articles also elaborate how technology can be applied to meet educational needs. The diverse articles that will be evaluated have been recovered from credible sources which are Google Scholar and Swindburne library database. The reason as to why I picked these sources is because I believe that they are the most suitable and appropriate sources for this topic. The research method I used in analyzing this source is quantitative analysis due to the impact it has in highlighting the diverse issues.

This article bases its argument on how the diverse technological devices that are currently I use can be used to improve efficiency in the learning environment. This is based on the fact that there are numerous scholars who fail to utilize their devices to improve their learning experience. This is common in instances where the students are hooked to various social media sites and listening to music. The main argument of the article lies on the impact that utilizing technological devices may have given that a considerable number of students have access to tablets and mobile phones. Research is also evident in the paper whereby a survey was conducted through scholars from the University of Central Florida students need to be educated on how they can utilize technology to improve their learning experience. The study method used to collect data was internet based and on paper. The information collected was based on 1084 graduates and UCF students. In spite the extent that the survey went in providing credible information, it did not provide insight into the most frequently used applications by the students.

According to Yi, You and Bae (2016) there lies a need to guarantee that a proper study into the scholars interactions with the diverse technological devices is conducted. The aim of the research conducted is to establish the most suitable way in which technology may be utilized for educational purposes for higher learning students. Through the research provided, it becomes evident that there are significant positive and negative impacts of technology which are all dependent on how they are utilized. To guarantee that a positive analysis is provided looking into the diverse impacts of technology, a study is conducted among students from various universities in South Korea. The study was aimed at evaluating the most preferred use of smartphones by students.

Proper analysis of the argument being presented in this article clearly illustrates that its arguments is based on the statistics acquired from various scholars across European Universities. Through the study, the aim of the data acquired is to give insight of how technology has been integrated into the learning environment and how it may be utilized to enhance learning capacity. The article also highlights the diverse learning skills that students acquire through the integration of technology in learning activities. The article also does not fail to highlight the opportunity that technology provides in giving students access to diverse information that may not be available in books. The efficiency of the research conducted in this instance is based on the research method used whereby questionnaires were issued across diverse universities in Spain where a total of 419 students were involved. Further evaluation of the study also states that the study was conducted in a unique situation whereby data was collected based on different situations. Through the study, the study was focused on covering all the unique situations in which digital devices have been incorporated by students. Based on this categorization, the study only covered three major areas which were limited to social sciences, humanities and science.

As technology evolves, there exists a need to guarantee technology is incorporated into diverse aspects of our livelihood which includes learning. The major changes that the article aims at examining that should have be changed include how both students and teachers may be informed on the significant impact that technology may have on studies if properly incorporated. Through the study, it was established that an estimated 303 students use in their classes while another considerable percentage of students have incorporated by constantly checking school emails. The study also establishes that the learning coordinators should make frequent changes in the learning system to guarantee that studies are conducted in a manner that suits the diverse students’ needs. It is only through adapting to the diverse changes taking place in the learning environment that learning can take place in effectively. Despite the consistency that existed in the various results collected through the studies, it is inevitable to acknowledge that there are limitations given the survey was based on only one University, the University Winston-Salem State.

Through significantly evaluating Chiu and Lo (2015), it becomes evident that their primary objective is based on finding the daily use of smartphones by information science and library students. The results of this study are based on a study conducted among students from the University of Tsukuba and the University of Hong Kong with the aim of establishing whether their use of smartphones is based on academic purposes primarily. Further studies are also aimed at establishing their views on how appropriate smartphones are for learning purposes. Through the studies, it is established that the students under evaluation have a variety of uses for their smartphones which include, daily communication, academic purposes and socializing. The limitations that exist in this study is based on the fact that the study conducted was limited to University students in two institutions. The study was further based on the most frequently used platforms by the diverse students who were incorporated into the study who are limited to twenty students.
