Abstract—Development of technology affects many aspects of
human life. One of them is its negative impact on prosocial
behavior of students. This important behavior must be
increased in order to help the students to live adaptively. This
research employed qualitative method with ethnographic study
and the data was collected through in-depth interview with
many school counsellors in Indonesia. The results showed that
to improve prosocial behavior can be done in several ways,
namely considering its urgency, the impact of technology on
prosocial behavior, management of the influencing factors, and
the services of guidance and counselling that utilize the
enhancement of technology. Thus, the school counsellors are
suggested to discover the effectiveness of the ways and invent
another new technique to increase prosocial behavior.
Index Terms—Guidance and counselling, prosocial behavior, era of technology.
