dc.description.abstract This study has attempted to assess the influences of electronic media on the academic performance, behaviour and social interactions of the students of secondary schools and preparatory schools in Addis Ababa City Government, and the roles of high school community in contributing towards quality media consumption on the part of the students. Both quantitative and qualitative approaches were administered. Questionnaires, focus group and individual in- depth, key informant interviews were the instruments used to collect data from students and teachers, who were the focus of the study. In this study, multi-stage cluster sampling technique has been administered to identify the participants of the study. The data were analyzed using genres of SPSS 20. The result of the study has depicted that the majority of the students engage themselves in frequent electronic media environment and access quite a number of forms of electronic media. The students use the media for various reasons including getting educational information, entertainment, building relationships with people, get information and learn about the world, get pleasure and relax when they get tired, build self-confidence, get moral guidance, and resolve personal problems and difficulties. Although the schools provide educational programs to the students on ICT, the students’ are seldom protected from getting involved in the electronic media communications. The schools and parents of the adolescents restrict the use of the media in one way or another but the implementations of the rules and regulations on various aspects of the use of the media are not consistent, and the consequences of failure to comply with the standards are not clear. Finally, the research showed that there is a strong need to direct priority to the effort that needs to be done in increasing the awareness of parents and teachers on how to help students engage themselves in productive media interactions and communications. en_US
