Abstract:This research reports findings for a study of information behavior for technology pervasive information environments of the 21st Century. Social media users (n=147) completed an online learning preference survey battery which included four Likert-type (strongly disagree to strongly agree) instruments: the Social Media Learning (SML) scale, the Technology Affinity Survey (TAS), the Computer Attitudes Questionnaire (CAQ), and the Integrated Communications Technology Learning (ICTL) survey. Data analysis centered on developing an understanding of information seeking behavior in order to design instruction which will support the inquiry process in technology pervasive information environments such as Web 2.0 environments. Findings were that 23% of the variance in information seeking behavior can be explained with the proposed model.
