I. Content and Rationale

Social networking sites became the leading way of communication even from the

other side of the world to miles away from it. These sites serve variety of

services that entertains their users all over the world. From the youngest possible

user to the oldest one, everyone keeps an eye on their own social network accounts

wherein they can show to the people their expressions about anything under the

sun. Filipinos are very social by nature. With the current advances in technology,

socialization has become highly te chnological and internet based. Many Filipinos

know and use facebook along with other less favored social networking sites and

applications like Twitter, Instagram, Viber and Whatsapp. Aside from

socialization, all sorts of organizations also utilize socia l media in the

Philippines. Government, non-government, educational and business

organizations now have their own facebook and twitter accounts. Politicians and

celebrities also have accounts that Filipino people now follow closely more than

the local news. Stores and independent sellers create facebook accounts to sell

and advertise their merchandise. At present, whether social media is favorable or

unfavorable, many students utilize these sites on a daily basis. As social media

sites continue to grow in popularity it is our belief that technology is a vital part

of today’s students’ success equation (Wang, Chen & Liang, 2011). Many

researchers have been looking into a considerable amount of research on how

social media influences student academic performa nces at colleges. Many

parents are worried that their children are spending too much time on Facebook

and other social media sites and not enough time studying.
II. Action Research Questions.

This study was conducted to determine how social media affect the study

habits of students in Governor Feliciano Leviste Memorial National High

School. Specifically this study sought to answer the following questions.

Questions:

1. How do social media affect student’s performance in school?

2. Is there any significant effects of Social Media on the study habits of

pupils?

3. How can social media be used in education?

4. Is social media use heavily integrated into the study habits of students?

III. Proposed Innovation, Intervention and Strategy

Taking measures to improve academic performance and outcome starts

with improving the behavior of students in the classroom. Although it can seem

challenging, teachers play a large role in creating an environment that

encourages learning, improve student behavior and create better academic

performance at every level of education. Teachers can accomplish amazing feats

when the appropriate strategies are implemented to improve the behavior in the

classroom. The Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support program, a

teaching and training organization for professional educators, cites numerous

studies on its website that suggest students with poor classroom behavior often

struggle with academic skills.


Behavior academic outcomes refer to the changes that student actions can have

on the ability to maintain good performance in the classroom. As behavior

academic outcomes relate to negative situations and poor actions by students, the

classroom environment becomes less positive and teachers can struggle to

provide the best education to the entire class. Positive changes to the behavior of

students can improve the academic outcomes at any grade level.

My proposed innovation and intervention are:

1. Offer support and belief in the students .

2. By implementing a classroom management rewards syste m, teachers better

control problem student behavior.

3. Setting high standards of education and achievement in the classroom .

4. Incorporating several learning styles into the coursework will make it

easier for students to remain engaged .
