This study wants to predict how much influence the factors (frequency of internet usage, number of instant messaging (IM) groups followed, and gender of one's learning style preferences when utilizing technology such as computers / laptops or smartphones. The analysis method used in this research is Multinomial Logistic Regression. The results showed, the more IM groups followed, the more likely a person was to use a "communication" model while learning. Another finding is that a person is increasingly using the internet then the style that person uses when studying is tend to use the pattern of "information seeking". By knowing someone's learning style earlier, we can design learning strategies that are more efficient and effective.
