Suggestion[edit source]

Hi. Your book chapter is looking great so far and really interesting read! Just make sure you check your capitalisation on your quiz and I think maybe adding focus questions at the start of the chapter would be really helpful. Such as: what is the relationship between boredom and technology addiction? What are the theories of boredom? What why can be done to reduce the harm? All the best! --Anna u3200574 (discusscontribs) 07:45, 17 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Hi, I think that a case study would be a really useful resource to add to your topic. It would provide a real world example of how people might use technology to combat their boredom, or how technology addiction might stem from boredom. I came across an interesting page that you might like to have a look at exploring Digital media use and mental health. There is a lot of information regarding the impacts of technology addiction on mental health and references you may find useful. --U3186377 (discusscontribs) 08:31, 29 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Hi, i managed to find this article on scholar, it is a bit short but highlights the issues of phone usage and how it can affect the way we seek attention. https://en.wikiversity.org/w/index.php?title=Talk:Motivation_and_emotion/Book/2021/Freedom_and_motivation&diff=prev&oldid=2313713

hopefully, this is useful --Takudzwa14 (discusscontribs) 15:05, 29 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]


Hi! Iv’e found a video which I thought might be useful to include in your external links. It’s a Tedtalk which discusses technology addiction and the benefits of boredom :) - --TaraU3187760 (discusscontribs) 11:46, 13 October 2021 (UTC) https://www.ted.com/talks/manoush_zomorodi_how_boredom_can_lead_to_your_most_brilliant_ideas?language=en#t-949944[reply]

Hi! I have loved reading your page, so relevant to current circumstances! I just thought I would give you this ted talk which talks about social media addiction. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JH5bC-SLvb4

Suggestion[edit source]

Hey this topic is super interesting and relevant to the modern world... kinda scary if you ask me. Anyway, I came across this interesting article about whether overexposure to technology as a young child is better or worse for them. It explores developmental and learning implications so give it a read you might find it useful https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0896627310006781 --U3202984 (discusscontribs) 11:01, 15 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Suggestion[edit source]

Hi! This is a really relevant topic for this last years! I see that you have no headings yet so a starter I would recommend could be perhaps the affect COVID has had on people reliance on technology and how this has lead to possible lasting addiction! Here is a link on the topic (https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s12144-021-01470-8) Good luck! --U3204694 (discusscontribs) 10:32, 30 September 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Added 2 topics under see also section[edit source]

Hello! I just thought it'd be useful to add in two topics under your see also section namely Digital media use and mental health

Instagram's impact on people. Feel free to keep it or edit it out if you think they don't fit.- U3204438 Added in at 17/10/2021
