An inquiry into K-12 graduates’ technology use and skills in the Philippines
MetadataShow full item record
The study determined the extent of technology use, the tasks completed, and the type of technology utilized in completing specific tasks by the first batch of students of the K-12 curriculum in the Philippines who came from a private university of higher learning in the Visayas region. Findings revealed that the students identified themselves as above average or heavy technology users, and their perception as to the type of user they were did not vary according to gender and location. Smartphones were the standard technology the students used to complete most tasks. At the same time, students utilized laptops to complete limited but essential tasks like designing, entering data into spreadsheets, and doing presentations. Noticeably, the students did not use the desktop computers. Also, they did not use technology for big tasks such as checking bank finances, creating podcasts, or paying bills online.
