Intervention to Change Environmental and Information Communication Technology (ICT) Identities (thesis)
Two roles that have become increasingly relevant in education are one's place in the technological and natural worlds. The first role, labeled information communication identity (ICT), is how much one includes hardware (i.e. cell phone) and software (i.e. Facebook) into their self-concept (Lee et al. 2015), through acquisition of information and communication. People also have a role in the natural world, in which the more one incorporates the environment into their sense of self, the greater their environmental identity. Due to the importance of developing strong identities in both these areas, this study aims to explore how to develop both types of identity and the resulting effects on overall identity.
