Abstract:
The study focused on Mobile Phone Dependence among Junior High School Students in Public Schools in the Philippines. The study utilized a quantitative method and employed a descriptive research design. This study aims to describe mobile phone dependence among junior high students. The respondents of the study are the Grade 10 students of San Jose National High School in San Jose, Talibon, Bohol, and Philippines. A random sampling technique was applied in selecting the respondents. In this study, a standardized questionnaire by Mukhdoomiet.al (2020) was used to measure the mobile dependence of the respondents. Moreover, the finding revealed that students find it easy to utilize a mobile phone for academic purposes, which increases their perceived usefulness. Since we live in the 21st century, teaching and learning can be done digitally. It is recommended that Students should use mobile-friendly educational tools. Mobile-friendly instructional resources also enable interactive and self-guided learning, motivating students. Likewise, teachers must also inform students of the dangers of overusing mobile phones.
