Abstract

This paper investigates some issues of using gadgets in students' training at the university. The key methods of the study are observations and generalisation which allowed to verify the results. Based on empirical evidence, the study shows the importance of the gadget usage for doing different subjects in university. The initial data come from the questionnaire completed by the students and the textual analysis carried out by university lecturers. For evaluation purposes, the study uses quantitative and qualitative methods. Modern learning technology, types of information technologies used in the learning process are examined and advantages of using the Internet technology for students are highlighted. The analysis of Internet users on various continents is done and Russia's place in the rating of International Telecommunication Union in order to identify technical abilities for citizens to learn through the Internet is shown. The authors proved the effectiveness of using gadgets by students majoring in Economics, which will improve students' academic performance and minimize the time spent on the learning process.
