The new millennium has seen the world transforming from a handicraft and manufacture-based economy to one that relies heavily on technology and innovation. Accompanying such trends are teachers nowadays trying to utilize technological devices to facilitate or enhance their teaching experience for students. This essay evaluates the effects of computers and the Internet along with family background such factors as a family’s financial background, educational background, and the students’ family size and gender on Mexican seventh graders’ study performances using the OLS model in R language to analyze. The results of the data evaluation reveal that the students’ access to computers or the Internet overall have no significant effect on Spanish and Math grades since students use the Internet distinctively and the influence is more significant in the long run. Also, mothers’ education level only bonuses students’ Spanish scores, while fathers’ education has smaller effects on both scores. The findings that echoed previous studies on how some educationists predict the effect of the Internet will be along with how the role of gender played in traditional Mexican households affects their children’s grades.
