Teknoloji Bağımlılığının Turizm Deneyimlerine Etkisi ve Dijital Detoks Turizminin Tercih Edilebilirliği

Dijital detoks turizmi, tatil sırasında bilgi iletişim teknolojilerinin kullanımı ve çevrimiçi etkileşimlerin turistik deneyimlere olan olumsuz etkilerini azaltmak ve sanal dünya yerine gerçek dünyaya odaklanmayı sağlamak için ortaya çıkan yeni bir olgudur. Bu çalışmanın amacı da teknoloji bağımlılığının turizm deneyimlerine olan etkisini ve dijital detoks turizminin tercih edilebilirliğini araştırmaktır. Kolayda örnekleme tekniği kullanılarak son 1 yıl içerisinde tatil yapmış olan bireylere ulaşılmıştır. Yapılandırılmış görüşme formu aracılığıyla 70 katılımcıdan toplanan verilere içerik analizi ve betimsel analiz tekniği uygulanmıştır. Araştırmadan elde edilen bulgular, tatillerde teknoloji kullanımının bireylerin (%70’inin) turistik deneyim kalitesini olumsuz yönde etkilediğini göstermiştir. Bireylerin uzaklaşma, rahatlama ve akışta olma motivasyonu ile dijital detoks tatiline çıkma yönünde eğilimlerinin olduğu dolayısı ile teknolojinin olmadığı ya da kısıtlandığı dijital detoks tatillerinin tercih edilebilir olduğu sonucuna ulaşılmıştır.
