This research aims to determine how much influence gadgets have on the learning outcomes of grade 4 elementary school students. This research is quantitative research with an ex post facto research design. In this study, the sampling technique used random cluster sampling with a population of 859 students and a sample of 141 students. The research instruments were questionnaires and tests. Instrument test using validity test and reliability test. The data analysis of the normality test, linearity test, and hypothesis test with the regression test, f-test, t-test and the coefficient of determination. The study’s results showed a significant effect of the use of gadgets on student learning outcomes by 23.5%, with a correlation value of 0.491. Τhis indicates that the relationship influence of the role of parents, students' learning motivation and the use of gadgets on student learning outcomes is powerful and significant.
