Digital learning has become a trend in the field of education, and it’s slowly brewing in senior high school. This study aims to explore the impact of the senior high school students using Information Technology (IT) in digital learning on their learning attitude, self-efficacy, learning strategies and learning achievement.

The data was obtained from two experiments. In experiment 1: 41 students from Hualien High School were divided into experimental group and control group, and subjects in the experimental group were learning by using IT, with 38 valid questionnaires collected. In experiment 2, in order to explore the correlations among math learning attitude, self-efficacy, learning strategies and learning achievements, 348 second-grade students were selected as research subjects. There were 282 valid questionnaires. SPSS and SmartPLS software were the main tools for analysis. The results showed: (1) There were significant differences in learning attitude, self-efficacy, learning strategies and learning achievement. (2) There are significant correlations among learning attitude, self-efficacy, learning strategies and learning achievement. (3) Learning attitude has a significant and positive influence on self-efficacy and learning strategies. (4) Self-efficacy has a significant and positive influence on learning strategies and learning achievement. (5) Self-efficacy is a mediator between learning attitude and learning strategies.
