Title:Lonely collaborative information behavior (CIB) of youth
Author(s):Kang, Ji Hei
Subject(s):Collaborative information behavior
CIB for youth
Radical change theory
Abstract:The study investigated the information behaviors of middle and high school students during collaborative school projects. The researcher wanted to explore how students collaborating with their peers collect, use, share, and create information, and how social and cultural factors influence their behavior. Radical change theory was applied to analyze Korean middle and high school students' information behavior. This study found students do not study together. They separated the collaborative project into parts, with each student completing his or her part individually. Those parts were then combined. They were very prudent in evaluation information and express opinions about others. This study shows that middle and high school students, who are expected to use various multimedia media with their group members, are engaging in lonely collaboration, usually by themselves. The results show that the participants' principles of the digital age are quite fragmented. Follow-up research will look at their behavior changes and the factors related to lonely collaboration.
