INTRODUCTION

MOST OF THE PEOPLE ARE USING MOBILE PHONES IN THEIR EVERYDAY


LIFE. IN THEIR LIFE, MOBILE PHONE CAN BE A DISADVANTAGE OR AN
ADVANTAGE TO THEM ESPECIALLY TO STUDENTS. ACCORDING TO THE
EUROPEAN UNION’S IN-HOUSE STATISTICAL OFFICE, LUXEMBOURG (2006),
THAT THE TOTAL NUMBER OF SUBSCRIBERS IN MOBILE PHONE IN THE
WORLD WAS ESTIMATED AT 2.14 BILLION IN THE YEAR OF 2005. PEOPLE
NOWADAYS HAVE MOBILE PHONES AND USE THEM FREQUENTLY. RECENT
SURVEY FROM DECEMBER 2011 SHOWS THAT THERE ARE 337.6 M PHONE
USERS IN THE U.S WHICH IMPLIES A PENETRATION RATE OF 104% ACROSS
THE COUNTRY (CTIA, 2011).
STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM
• MOBILE PHONES BECAME A NECESSITY IN OUR SOCIETY
REGARDLESS OF THE AGE OF THE PERSON. IN THIS
GENERATION, EVERY STUDENTS HAVE THEIR OWN MOBILE
PHONES. IT MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE AN AFFECT ON STUDENTS
ACADEMIC PEROFORMANCE.THIS STUDY AIMS TO KNOW WHAT
IS THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE USAGE OF MOBILE
PHONES TO THE ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE OF SENIOR HIGH
SCHOOL STUDENTS.
REVIEW OF RELATED LITERATURE
• MOBILE PHONES ARE A HUGE ASSET WHEN IT IS USED PROPERLY AND
FOR ACADEMIC PURPOSES. MODERN TECHNOLOGY IS AFFECTING US IN
MANY WAYS, IT MAY BE IN A POSITIVE IMPACT OR IN A NEGATIVE IMPACT.
ONLINE-GAMES, IPODS AND MOBILE PHONES ARE NOW FIXTURES OF
YOUTH CULTURE (UNICEF, 2011).
• IN SOUTHEAST ASIA, MOBILE PHONES HAD BEEN PROVEN TO BE
EFFECTIVE OR A MEANS OF TESTING STUDENT PERFORMANCE
(WHATTANARONG, 2006) IMPORTANT LESSONS HAVE BEEN ADAPTED
FROM EARLY EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCES WITH MOBILE PHONES
(ATTEWELL, 2005; KUKULSKA-HUME & TRAXLER, 2005; STEAD, 2005)
• THE MISUSE OF PHONES MAY LEAD TO CHEATING, AND THE INABILITY OF
THE TEACHERS TO MONITOR THE USE OF CELLPHONES BY STUDENTS
(RAFAEL, 2003) STUDENTS COULD NOT FOCUS IN THEIR ACADEMIC
PERFORMANCE BECAUSE OF MOBILE PHONES. DISTRACTIONS LIKE THIS
KIND OF TECHNOLOGY MIGHT DISCONNECT THEM TO THE REAL WORLD
(LIVAZOVIC, 2011).
• A LOT OF STUDENTS WERE CHEATING IN THEIR EXAMS. STUDENTS DO NOT
EVEN REALIZE THAT THEIR PRIORITIES HAVE BEEN LEFT OUT BECAUSE OF
THEIR INTERACTION IN MOBILE PHONES (SRIVASTRA, 2005). IT CAN BE A
DISADVANTAGE IN A WAY THAT THEY CANNOT FOCUS IN THEIR STUDIES,
ESPECIALLY IN ADOLESCENT STAGE THEY ARE EASY TO BE DISTRACTED
EVEN IN THE LITTLE THINGS.
METHODOLOGY
• RESEARCH DESIGN - OUR STUDY WILL BE CONDUCTED AT THE COLEGIO DE SAN JUAN
DE LETRAN. WE WILL BE TARGETING THE STUDENTS’ ESPECIALLY THE SENIOR
HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS IN ALL THE STRAND HAVING THE AGE OF 16 TO 19
YEARS OLD. THIS STUDY WILL BE USING THE PHENOMENOLOGICAL APPROACH
TO UNDERSTAND WHAT ARE THE EXPERIENCES THAT THE STUDENTS HAVE
ENCOUNTERED WITH THE USE OF MOBILE PHONES IN THE LEVEL OF SENIOR
HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS IN THE SCHOOL OF COLEGIO DE SAN JUAN DE LETRAN.
IF THE MOBILE PHONES OF THE STUDENTS’ ARE AFFECTING THEM POSITIVELY
AND NEGATIVELY IN THEIR ACADEMIC PERFORMANCES. AFTER WE CONDUCT
THE INTERVIEWS FOR THE STUDENTS. WE WILL ANALYZE THEIR ANSWERS AND
FIND THE COMMON ANSWERS OF STUDENTS IF IT IS A POSITIVE OR NEGATIVE
EFFECT TO THEM, WHICH MAYBE CAN LEAD US INTO THE BEST RESULTS INTO
OUR STUDY.
• SAMPLING TECHNIQUE -THIS STUDY EMPLOYS A PURPOSIVE SAMPLING
TECHNIQUE FOR THE CONDUCT OF AN IN-DEPTH INDIVIDUAL INTERVIEW
WITH AN FOR ANALYSIS OF THE RESULTS AMONG THE SENIOR HIGH
STUDENTS.
• RESEARCH INSTRUMENT -THIS RESEARCH STUDY WILL BE USING A
QUESTIONNAIRE THAT IS COMPOSED OF FIVE (5) QUESTIONS THAT IS
RELATED TO OUR GENERAL TOPIC.
DATA PROCEDURE
• TO OBTAIN THE DATA, THE RESEARCHER UNDERTAKES THE FOLLOWING:
• A REQUEST LETTER WILL BE PREPARED FOR THE LETRAN RESEARCH CENTER,
• WITH THE PERMISSION OF THE LETRAN RESEARCH CENTER, THROUGH THE SENIOR HIGH
SCHOOL PRINCIPAL, THE RESEARCHER WILL CONDUCT A MEETING WITH DIFFERENT
STUDENTS INSIDE THE COLEGIO.
• THE RESEARCHER WILL SELECT 20-40 SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS BOTH MALE AND
FEMALE THAT ARE AGED 16-19 WHO ARE CURRENTLY STUDYING AT COLEGIO DE SAN JUAN
DE LETRAN.
• THE RESEARCHER WILL GIVE A QUESTIONNAIRE TO THE SELECTED RESPONDENTS
SIMULTANEOUSLY.
• THE RESEARCHER WILL CONDUCT AN INTERVIEW WITH THE RESPONDENTS OF THIS STUDY.
• THE PARTICIPANTS’ RESPONSES IN THE QUESTIONNAIRES WILL BE COLLATED, ANALYZED
AND INTERPRETED USING APPROPRIATE DATA ANALYSIS TOOLS.
DATA ANALYSIS
• THIS STUDY IS USING DESCRIPTIVE CONTENT ANALYSIS. AFTER WE
GATHERED THE ANSWERS OF THE RESPONDENTS, WE ANALYZED THEIR
ANSWERS AND WE COME UP THAT MAJORITY OF THE STUDENTS IS THAT THE
MOBILE PHONE IS AFFECTING THEM BOTH POSITIVELY AND NEGATIVELY.
NEGATIVE IN A WAY THAT MOBILE PHONES ARE DISTRACTING THEM THAT
LEADS THEM TO BECOME LAZY. AND THE STUDENTS IS TEMPTED TO OPEN
THEIR SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS JUST TO OVERCOME THEIR BOREDNESS.
• WHILE ON THE OTHER HAND, IN A POSITIVE WAY, MOBILE PHONES CAN HELP
THEM TO FIND SOME INFORMATIONS FASTER THAN FINDING AN
INFORMATION IN A BOOK IN THE LIBARARY.

ANSWER
Thematic Subordinate R#1. Q#1
“Yes, because although many people
are against it there’s still advantages
associated with allowing cellphones
in school. Cellphones can be a huge
help to students especially when they
need advanced technology
experience since technology is
emerging in our generation now
cellphones can give a lot of
educational use. One of my personal
experience is having an online quiz to
every subject. Since cellphones are
more convenient than laptops i often
use mobile phones than computers.”

ANSWER
Thematic Subordinate R#13. Q#2
“Technology has vastly improved in
the last decade. It has helped us in
our everyday lives and it plays a big
role in students’ lives especially to
this generation. Mobile phones make
life easier because it serves an
instrument in doing tasks in a fast and
accurate manner. When teachers ask
us to research about a certain topic,
we have quick access on the world
wide web which helps us to cope up
with the instructions given by the
teacher.”

ANSWER
Thematic Subordinate R#16. Q#3.
“There are a lot of negative effects.
For me, I get distracted a lot. As I
have mentioned above, our professor
allows us to use our mobile phones
during her class, so we could see the
materials she posted on our facebook
group. But then I tend to cast my
attention away from the actual
reason of using my phone then
diverts it to my other social media
sites to entertain myself rather than
listen to what is being discussed in
front. Same with my classmates, they
usually just pay attention to their own
deeds than to listen to a classmate
reporting in front.”

ANSWER
Thematic Subordinate R#16. Q#3.1.
“It is important to limit,
because it is not always every
time that we need it. It is a
huge cause of distraction
among us, yes, we use it
academically, but we also like
to take a break sometimes then
eventually neglects the initial
reason for using it anyway.
Some people/students also do
not care about their studies
anymore if they have the latest
model of mobile phones from
the market. Absolutely

ANSWER
Thematic Subordinate R#16 Q#3.2.
“Too much, I can say. It's like they cannot
even live without a phone even for a day.
It's like they are so outdated with what is
currently happening in the world when
they get off their phones even for a single
hour, it's just frustrating me. This also
reduces their actual social interactions
because they care more about their
virtual identities and reputations than
solve their actual and real problems. I am
certainly not one of these humans, I don't
want to be.”
R#16 Q#4.
“It will cause the students to revolt. Of
course, first thing is that they would
complain so much since it would be "so
boring" if they do not have their phones
with them. Also, I think it'll be a bad move
DISCUSSION
•AS WE HAVE TAKEN THE DATA FROM THE RESPONDENTS. THE
RESULTS HAVE SHOWN THAT THE POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE AFFECT
OF THE MOBILE PHONES IS BALANCED. IN A WAY THAT THE USAGE
OF MOBILE PHONES HAVE NEGATIVE AND POSITIVE AFFECTS,
MAJORITY OF THE RESPONDENTS STATES THAT MOBILE PHONES
CAN HELP THEM TO THEIR ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE
CONCLUSION & RECOMMENDATION
• THE PRIME AIM OF THE STUDY WAS TO UNDERSTAND THE PERCEPTION AND
ACCEPTANCE OF MOBILE PHONE AS A EDUCATIONAL TOOLS AMONG STUDENTS. THE
STUDY REVEALS THE IMPORTANCE OF MOBILE PHONE AS A MEANS OF SOCIALIZATION
AND THE MULTIPLE COMPONENTS OF INFORMATION ON MOBILE INTERNET USAGE
AMONG YOUNG MOBILE USERS. STUDENTS WILL INEVITABLY USE MOBILE PHONES, BOTH
COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE (SUCH AS THE MICROSOFT OFFICE AND GOOGLE DRIVE
SUITES) AND INSTITUTIONALLY SPECIFIC (SUCH AS THE LMS). MANY STUDENTS FEEL
UNPREPARED TO USE INSTITUTIONALLY SPECIFIC TECHNOLOGY, AND SOME EVEN FEEL
UNPREPARED TO USE COMMERCIAL SOFTWARE. REGARDLESS OF THE NUMBER OR SIZE
OF ONLINE COURSES OR PROGRAMS AT AN INSTITUTION, TECHNOLOGY IS CRITICAL TO
STUDENT SUCCESS, SO THIS LACK OF KNOWLEDGE AND CONFIDENCE IS A MAJOR POINT
OF FAILURE FOR STUDENTS. RESEARCH STUDIES HAVE SHOWN THAT MOBILE PHONE
HELP THE STUDENTS TO ACCESS FILES, DOCUMENTS, AND DISCUSSION ABOUT THE
LESSON IN THE SCHOOL. SOME OF THE BENEFITS OF USING MOBILE PHONE IN THE
STUDENTS IS TO LEARN MORE AND TO IMPROVE HIGHER LEARNING SKILLS.
