The Relationship between Computer Time and Communication Apprehension/Communication Competence among Adolescents.
Schliesman, Terry; Ayres, Joe
This study was conducted to determine if time spent using the computer was related to communication apprehension (CA) and self-perceived communication competence (SPCC) among high school students. To this end, an ex post facto design was employed. Subjects were 534 students from a West-Coast school district. Results indicated that students' self-reported computer time use did not correlate significantly and/or substantially with levels of communication apprehension or communication competence. Among other things, these findings suggest that use of computers are not as socially threatening as some scholars believe. (Contains 20 references.) (Author/RS)
