Upon completion of my write up on the theory of digital “resident” and “visitor”, I had been reading on my classmate’s blogs with a general question in my head: “If motivation is a determinant of the Visitor and Resident continuum, what leads to motivation?”
My afterthoughts on Tian Yi’s blog: Privacy can be proposed as a subset of personal influences. An individual who place several emphasizes on privacy and deterring online identity theft would choose not to socialize online, that makes him or her more of a visitor. Her post had made used of videos, flow chart and visual aids as well, it can an essential tool for my personal learning.
On the other hand, Jue Ying’s blog mentioned about upbringing, which can be proposed as a subset of external influences. An individual who is engaged with technology from young would be naturally inclined to be a digital resident as it is a part of his or her lifestyle now. It was a very neat presentation, her introduction had really captured my attention by striking a question to arouse my curiosity.
To summarize, Both posts had given me certain assurance that studies on motivation having a relation with an individual’s choice of being a “resident” and “visitor” can be explored further to reinforce on the theory. An excellent show of standardization work done well on the referencing side as well which I had followed and amended accordingly to my post.
Here are some other studies explored by our classmates which I had found relatable to my area of research towards motivation.
