The rapid development in technology forces us to make some changes to the existing education system. Since, the future of education is about to access learning and collaboration, both globally and locally. Thus it can be said that teaching and learning are going to be social. In this study, the meta-analytic survey method is used as it is a method of combining the results of different studies. For this purpose, experimental and quasi-experimental studies examining the academic success between the years 2009-2019 are examined. Higher Education Council National Thesis Center (YÖK), Google Academic databases and ULAKBİM are taken as basis in the measurement of the researches included in this study. As a result of the literature review, a general view was obtained by combining Meta-analyses with 53 studies on academic success which is appropriate to the research problem. The effect size values of the studies included in the meta-analysis are calculated using the CMA Comprehensive Meta-Analysis (CMA) program. The overall effect size on academic achievement was found to be moderate with 0.700 according to the random-effects model. The results have shown that using technological devices in foreign language teaching has a notable level of dominance.
