Examining attitudes of students towards learning, their academic achievements and internet addictions is the main focus of this study. With the institution permission obtained from the Provincial Directorate of National Education of Istanbul Governorship dated: 21.04.2016 and No: 59090411-20-E.4519158, a descriptive study in relational screening model was conducted. By evaluating the data of 355 students (158 male and 176 female), from 370 students studying in the 9th, 10th, and 11th grades attending public high schools in the region of Kadiköy, Istanbul during 2015-2016 academic year the outcome results were obtained. "Personal Information Form", "Attitudes Towards Learning" and "Computer Addiction for Adolescents" scales were used in order to collect research data. By analyzing the data with t test, one-way variance analysis (ANOVA) and correlation statistical research techniques in the SPSS 22.0 program, findings were obtained. A significance level of 0.05 was taken as the basis in the applied statistics. As per the findings, a difference was found in terms of internet addiction according to gender, academic achievement, homework habits, family activity frequency variables. Furthermore, a negative relationship was found according to the correlation analysis result between students' attitudes towards learning and internet addiction. In conclusion, in the light of the the research findings, it is possible to express that differentiation of students' attitudes towards learning can support effective and efficient use of information technologies. However, the negative differentiation of the attitudes towards learning can generate Internet addiction as a result of inefficient use of the information technologies.
