Virginia C. Darunday


Abstract: The study investigated the association between the utilization of Social networking sites (SNS) with the chemistry academic performance of the third-Year students of New Corella National High School, New Corella, Davao del Norte for SY 2013-2014. The researcher utilized the correlation method. Data were collected through a modified survey questionnaire from Mehmood (2013) and Mahamat et. al (2012) using a sample (N=209) SNSs users were purposively selected to gather the data. Findings revealed that most of the students were subscribed to one or two SNS and majority of them were found to spend most of their time with SNS from less than an hour to three hours. A greater number of students have an access to SNS in the internet café at least once a day and weekly. Moreover, getting information, playing games, communicating and chatting with friends were the main purpose of using SNS while to search information, to have fun, enjoyable and to communicate with friends were the gratification obtained by the students which is consistent with their purpose. Furthermore, the utilization of SNS did not influenced their academic performance in chemistry. However, they agree that the use of SNSs can be helpful in their academic performance. Thus, there is a need for the Science supervisor to integrate SNSs in the Science program and to conduct trainings for teacher for effective Science teaching particularly in chemistry through the use of social networking sites (SNSs).
