Students’ Technology Use and Its Effects on Peer Relationships, Academic Involvement, and Healthy Lifestyles
Posted on 10 January 2017 by Azlinda Abd Rahim (Assistant Manager)
Abstract

The purpose of this study was to explore students’ technology use and its relationship with their psychosocial development. Previous research explored students’ computer use in conjunction with their cognitive development. This study examined the effects of computer use and other technologies, such as instant messaging, handheld gaming devices, and MP3 players, and the impact they have on students’ peer relationships, academic involvement, and healthy lifestyles. Results show both positive and negative effects on all three constructs of psychosocial development, including differences based on gender and race.
