Internet addiction may reduce study skills and motivation

Technology Inceptions

Students who use internet excessively are less motivated to engage with their studies, and are more anxious about tests, according to a research conducted at Swansea University and the University of Milan.  Two hundred and eighty-five university students, enrolled on a range of health-related degree courses participated in the study. Their use of digital technology, study skills and motivation, anxiety, and loneliness were assessed.

The study found a negative relationship between internet addiction and motivation to study. Students reporting more internet addiction also found it harder to organise their learning productively, and were more anxious about their upcoming tests. The study also found that internet addiction was associated with loneliness, and that this loneliness made study harder.

The study suggests that loneliness plays a large role in positive feelings about academic life in higher education. The poorer social interactions make loneliness worse, and, in turn, impact on motivation to engage in a highly social educational environment such as a university.
