Abstract


The study aimed at exploring the different trends associated with the use of globalization technologies by students coming from Badia region. The study also looks at the impact of gender, the academic stage and the income of the family. A sample of 244 students, gathering both males and females, was selected randomly and a questionnaire, consisting of 38 sections, was developed to measure these trends. The questionnaire was credible and reliable enough for the purposes of this study. The findings of the study revealed that students had a positive attitude towards the globalization technologies and there were statistically significant differences at the level of a= 0.5 in favor of gender and particularly females, while there were no statistically significant differences at the level of a=0.5 that can be attributed to the academic stage and the income of the family. The findings also presented a host of recommendations, most importantly: encouraging students from Badia region to use globalization technologies and utilizing them for electronic education as well as conducting additional studies in this field to tackle other variables.
