Abstract

Technology has drastically transformed the culture of education system. Students have access to endless data and information from the ocean of sources called Internet with high speed and reliability. Teachers can perform various calculations, analyze information, visualize educational data and information and can even conduct live classes through various media software. Despite Internet having many constructive attributes, there are few unconstructive aspects also. Due to contemporary trends of online gaming, students are becoming increasingly more addictive towards their electronic gadgets which are hampering their studies. This paper examines the impact of technology on a student. A survey questionnaire was distributed online to various University students through their emails in Delhi-NCR region. The analysis of the survey was processed through WEKA software. The survey concluded the aftermaths of technology as undergraduate students are more prone to spend above 90% of their time on their smart phones utilizing the internet facilities mainly from home.
