Abstract

The aim of this paper is to investigate the computer usage among secondary school students in one of a secondary school in Malaysia according on hours spent using computers without activities connecting to internet and hours spent doing internet activities. Questionnaires were given to the students, and seventy secondary school students had participated. This study involves some normal activities such as to find out (i) the value and percentage of students who had computers and internet connections at homes, (ii) the venues of the students spent time using computers without activities connecting to internet, (iii) the venues of the students spent time doing internet activities. In addition, (iv) hours spent using computers without activities connecting to internet, and (v) hours spent doing internet activities are also studied. Besides that the gender analyses based on some basic activities that can be done with computer were also analyzed. This study utilized Descriptive Statistics and Independent t-Test for the analysis methods. As for the result although more than half of the students had computers in their homes, however only half from this figure had accessed to the Internet. Many of the students also liked to use the computer whether it was connected or not connected to the internet by going to the cyber cafe. In addition, the hours spent on using computer weekly by male and female students were also revealed, that in many basic activities, male students were more likely to spend their valuable hours significantly sitting in front of computers doing things compared to the female students.
