PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND

Introduction
In this growing age of technology, we can’t deny that the youth are now familiar with the Internet. Most of the “generation Y” today frequently log in to their accounts in social networking sites such as Facebook, Tumblr, and even Twitter. They are also fond of watching videos, playing online games, and listening and downloading music. However, such people are unaware of what they do in their computers. They use the Internet in wrong means. Some use it to bully students, posting them there. While some jump into obscene sites, watch forms of pornography, and get pictures of lust and disgust. With these things that are well-known to most of us, there are more things that the Net has which give such bad effects on people. In this study, the researchers are curious about the good and bad effects of the Net to the youth. Meaning to say, the advantages and disadvantages of the World Wide Web. Furthermore, they want to find out more on what positive and negative benefits and influences the Net has. The researchers studied on their fellow second year students of the school year 2011-2012 on the advantages and disadvantages of the Internet to them, in their schedule, values and their lives. They do believe that their study would help the youth’s parents in looking after their children in monitoring what they do on the web. It would also benefit people in the computer industry, including owners of Internet cafés. As well, it would help the youth themselves, for them to think before they click.

Statement of the Problem

This study was conducted to investigate all the advantages and disadvantages of the Internet in the school Santa Rosa Science and Technology High School (SRSTHS) during the school year 2011-2012 as perceived by the Second Year Students.

Specifically, the study attempts to answer the following questions:

1. How will this affect the study habits of the students? 2. How adequate do students us the Internet?
3. What solutions can be used to solve the problem?
4. How do these activities affect their:
5.1 Behaviour
5.2 Time management
5.3 Studies
5. What are the top activities of the students in the Internet?

Hypotheses

Figure 1: Paradigm of the study
This study will prove the null hypothesis. There is no student who does not use the Internet. In this study, the researchers think that students do not use the Internet properly, affecting the study habits and behaviour of students.

Significance of the Study
The result of this study would help the students to know what would be the effects of using of the internet too much, and to prevent the abuse of the internet.
