This study determined the role and impact of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) to the learning of the students. It further looks into the extent of effects of ICT usage to the social, recreational and sports activities of the students. The descriptive survey design is utilized in this paper. A researcher – made instrument is the main tool in gathering the data aided by indicators listed on the paper of a certain researcher as a result of his literature review. The gathered data was treated and interpreted statistically using the verbal interpretation set by the researcher. The result of the study revealed that outside the school only few hours are used by almost majority of ICTs and none of them uses more than twelve hours. It was found that the use of Internet for academic works is the least used ICT by the respondents. They declared that ICTs has great roles to their academic or non-academic learning and as such their learning is at all times augmented. The impact of ICTs are demonstrated from great extent to very great extent. In addition, among the recreational, social and sports activities, the latter is the type of activities which are less affected by respondent’s time used for ICTs. Therefore, it can be concluded that although the respondents of this study expressed in their assessment that the ICTs help them at great extent but they did not use much of their time to a more fruitful activity which is the academic works. The positive perception of the respondents to the role and impact of the use of ICTs show that modern technologies are useful; however, careful management and utilization of these devices should be well taken so that other activities like recreation will not be much affected.
