Dr. Prem Sunder

The modern world is changing rapidly due to the advancement in the field of science and technology; if we say that this world is an e-world would not be wrong. We disseminate the live information quickly to the others through the mass-media (television, radio, internet, mobile, movies, video games, newspaper, magazines and other electronic and print media). It has copiously influenced each and every aspect of the society; specially the adolescent students; its play a significant role in today’s world. A lot of time is being spent on a medium of mass-media by the students which have affected their total personality and especially the performance. This mass-media has both positive and negative effect on the students. The present study is a sincere attempt to ascertain that what type of media is abundantly used by the students and what is the huge effect of mass-media on students and how can we (parents, teachers, counselors, administrators of education and others well-wishers/stake-holders of the society) control over the students negatively influence by media? A sample of two hundred students was used to collect relevant information by applying self-made questionnaire and descriptive method and simple percentage statistical technique was used to analyze the data and it was found that students were highly affected by mass-media both positively and negatively; students spend their most of the time on media on destructive subjects instead of constructive and their academic performance and health was found highly effected by media.
