THE IMPACT OF SMARTPHONE TECHNOLOGY AND ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE ON ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE IN LIBYAN SCHOOLS IN MALAYSIA
This study aims to investigate the impact of mobile technology and artificial intelligence on the academic performance of Libyan students in Malaysian schools. The problem highlighted the neglect of mobile technology usage in Libyan educational institutions and the limited use of artificial intelligence, which significantly contributed to the decline in academic performance in Libyan schools. Additionally, the lack of self-efficacy among students negatively affected the opportunity for utilizing artificial intelligence or mobile technology to enhance academic performance in Libyan schools in Malaysia. This study reveals the importance of using artificial intelligence in Libyan educational institutions and how to address traditional barriers that hinder the use of mobile technology and artificial intelligence in Libyan schools in Malaysia. Furthermore, the study sheds light on the prominent role played by students' self-efficacy in adapting the use of mobile technology and artificial intelligence to improve and develop academic performance, as well as enable the use of active learning methods and collaborative work among students with the assistance of teachers. The study adopts a quantitative approach to examine the impact of mobile technology and artificial intelligence on academic performance in Libyan schools in Malaysia. The study population consists of 550 students from the preparatory stage in Libyan schools in Malaysia, including the Libyan School in Ampang, the Libyan School in Damai, the Libyan School in Kajang, and the Libyan Future Steps School. The study sample comprised 226 students from Libyan schools in Malaysia. The study yielded several results, including a direct statistical relationship between the use of mobile technology and students' academic performance. Furthermore, there is an indirect statistical relationship between the use of mobile technology and artificial intelligence in relation to students' performance, with self-efficacy serving as a mediating variable. The study recommends the importance of expanding the application of artificial intelligence in various educational institutions in Libya and emphasizes the need to adopt multiple programs and applications that facilitate the use of artificial intelligence to enhance students' academic performance.
