Hitlin (2005) conducted a study on grade fluctuation & cell phone he found that there is a difference in grade fluctuation among those who put off doing their home work to spend timing in cell phone or text messaging. Arnetz BB, et.al., (2005) conducted an experimental study “On teenagers cell phone use on academic performance”. It reveals that teenagers who use their phones late at night are risking lack of proper deep rem sleep which has the potential to alter their moods and lead to personality changes. Lack of concentration and poor academic performance. Anna Gusline, (2005) conducted a study on “Watching TV harms kids academic success” Her study findings were too much time infront of the TV reduces children’s learning abilities, academic achievement and even the likelihood of their graduating from university. But it may be the quality, not quantity of the programmes that really matters. Frederick Zimmerman et.al., (2004) at the University of Washington in Seattle, found that kids who watched the most TV before the age of 3 performed poorest on reading and mathematics tests at ages 6 and 7 even of whom was with one percent at a university child study center. Half of the one hour session, parents and children were in a play room without TV in the other half hour parents chose on adult directed program to watch. The researchers observed how often parents and children talked with each other, how actively involved the parents were in their children’s play

24 and whether parents and children responded to each other’s questions and suggestions. When the TV was on the researchers found, both the quantity and quality of interactions between parents and children dropped. Specifically parents spent about 20% less time talking to their children and the quality of the interactions declined, with parents less achieve, attentive and responsive to their youngsters. David Walsh Ph.D., (2004) says TV in the bed room “A recipe for poor academic performance” 53% of kids in general and 65% American teens have TVs, in their bedrooms. Only 35% of American teens have their own stereo equipment and fewer teens have CD players and / or cassette players (57%) than have TV in their bed rooms. The findings of the study revealed that the children who have TVs in their bed rooms watch five and a half hrs more TV each week than children who don’t have them in their bed rooms. Jeffrey Johnson et. al., (2003) of psychiatric institute, in US studied the TV habits of 14 years olds from 678 families. The researcher inter viewed and found that at age 14 most of the children watched between one & three hours of TV each day, while 13% watched more than 4 hrs, 10% watched less than one hour. Nearly one third of those who watched many hours of television “fall behind in the grades”. Karpinski, (2002) conducted the study on relationship between college students use of face book on their academic achievement. The researchers surveyed 219 students, including 102 undergraduate students at Ohio state and 117 graduate students. Findings showed that 79 percent of face book users have impact on their academic performances or failed to graduate by age 22.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
