Aligning Learner Preferences for Information Seeking, Information Sharing and Mobile Technologies
Mills, Leila A.; Knezek, Gerald; Khaddage, Ferial
International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Association for Development of the Information Society (IADIS) International Conference on Cognition and Exploratory Learning in Digital Age (CELDA) (Madrid, Spain, Oct 19-21, 2012)
This paper reports on the development of a new information communications technology (ICT) learning preference survey, its cross-validation with attitudes towards mobile learning, and new perspectives on information seeking, information sharing, and mobile access derived from the relationships uncovered. The Information and Communications Technology Learning (ICTL) survey instrument is designed to measure learners' preferences and information behavior for learning, knowledge acquisition, and sharing in the Web 2.0 technology pervasive environments of the twenty-first century. The instrument development process includes analysis for reliability and validity of instrument scales. The multi-step refinement process revealed two constructs with, respectively, very good and respectable measurement properties: Information Sharing (alpha = 0.83) and Information Seeking (alpha = 0.71). Cross-validation with a newly established mobile learning instrument confirms that both the Information Sharing and Information Seeking scales of ICTL have significant (p less than 0.001) alignment with mobile learning attitudes. Implications of findings are discussed. (Contains 5 figures and 3 tables.)
