PLAI Congress 2018 Program - - POSTER SESSION -

The pur­pose of this pa­per is to iden­tify the stu­dents’ per­cep­tion on block­ing so­cial net­work­ing and video shar­ing sites among col­lege stu­dents with and with­out gad­gets. Thereby, cross­sec­tional de­scrip­tive re­search de­sign was uti­lized in this study to de­ter­mine the per­cep­tion of the col­lege stu­dents from the dif­fer­ent col­leges with a to­tal num­ber of 355 re­spon­dents. Re­sults show that so­cial net­work­ing and video shar­ing sites can only cause dis­trac­tion to stu­dents’ stud­ies. Stu­dents with gad­gets say that they strongly agree in block­ing those sites, be­cause the sites can only lose their at­ten­tion and in­crease ad­dic­tion. Thus, it is be­ing rec­om­mended that the so­cial net­work­ing sites should be blocked, be­cause it could only af­fect aca­demic per­for­mance which leads to de­fla­tion grades. Stu­dents with and with­out gad­gets found the sites not use­ful in their learn­ing, be­cause there are some sites that are too con­tro­ver­sial.
