Received Date:28 July 2020, Accepted Date:20 August 2020, Published Date:21 September 2020


Objectives:To implement the Smart phone applications towards the learning activities of both primary and secondary level education. Methodology:Primary data was collected by firsthand (Primary source of information) producing the set of questions in English language consisting of two factors of variables using five point measuring scale (strongly agree, agree, neutral, disagree,and strongly disagree). Whereas, Secondary data has also been used for literature review that justifies our research work; in the light of numerous academic articles of various authors. Random sampling method was used by collecting the data from the 248 respondents including both students and teachers of Private schools. We checked the reliability of the instrument by using spss18 through Cronbach’s alpha and further justified the results by using regression analysis. Findings: Smart phone applications are the debatable and burning issue of different organizations during covid-19, which is focusing on learning activities of students. Smart phone applications need not be successful unless the effectiveness and usage of these applications are ensured. In this perspective, smart phone applications are directly related with academic activities.
