Ökkeş KISA [1] , Ayşe Yasemin KARAGEYİM KARŞIDAĞ [2]


Amaç: Bu çalışma ortaokul öğrencilerinin internet bağımlılığı (İB) ile sosyal beceri ve yalnızlık düzeyleri arasındaki ilişkiyi araştırmak ve IB düzeylerini etkileyen faktörleri belirlemek amacıyla yapılmıştır. Yöntem: Araştırmanın evrenini 2017-2018 eğitim- öğretim yılında Kırklareli’nde ortaokullara devam eden öğrenciler oluşturmaktadır (N = 10.682). Minimum örneklem büyüklüğü 668 olarak hesaplanmış, 693 öğrenciye ulaşılmıştır. Veriler İnternet Bağımlılığı Ölçeği (İBÖ), Matson Çocuklarda Sosyal Becerileri Değerlendirme Ölçeği (MÇSBDÖ), Çocuklar için Yalnızlık Ölçeği (ÇYÖ) ile toplanmıştır. Bulgular: Öğrencilerin %13,5'i orta, %1,5'i ciddi düzeyde internet bağımlısıdır. Düzeltilmiş çok değişkenli doğrusal regresyon analizinde, İBÖ skorları ile olumsuz MÇSBDÖ (β: 0.345, 95% CI: 0.252; 0.439, p < 0.001) ve ÇYÖ (β: 0.169, 95% CI: 0.050; 0.288, p < 0.01) skorları arasında pozitif yönde istatistiksel olarak anlamlı bir ilişki saptanmıştır. İBÖ skorları ile olumlu MESSY skorları arasında bir ilişki bulunamamıştır (p > 0.05). Erkek cinsiyette, 12 yaşından büyüklerde, akademik başarısını kötü algılayanlarda, aylık hane geliri 3000₺/ 500$’nin üzerinde olanlarda ve internet kullanımında ebeveyn denetimi olmayanlarda internet bağımlılığı riski yüksektir (p<0.05). Sonuç: Öğrencilerin İB düzeyleri sosyo-demografik ve internet kullanım özelliklerinden etkilenmektedir. IB arttıkça öğrencilerin sosyal becerileri kötüleşmekte ve yalnızlık düzeyleri artmaktadır.

Aim: This study was conducted to investigate the association between internet addiction(IA), and social skills and loneliness levels in junior high school students and to determine the factors affecting their IA levels. Method: The population of the study consisted of students attending junior high schools in Kirklareli, in the 2017-2018 academic year(N=10,682).After minimum sample size was calculated as 668, 693 students were reached. In the study, the Internet Addiction Scale(IAS), Matson Evaluation and Social Skills with Youngsters(MESSY) and Children's Loneliness Scale(CLS) were used to collect the study data. Results: Of the students, 13.5% were moderate, 1.5% were severe internet addicts. The results of the adjusted Multivariate Linear Regression analysis indicated that while there was a positive association between IAS scores and the scores for the NegativeMESSY(β:0.345, 95%CI:0.252;0.439,p<0.001) and CLS(β:0.169, 95%CI:0.050;0.288,p<0.01), there was no association between the IAS scores and PositiveMESSY scores(p>0.05).The risk of IA was high in the male gender, >12 years of age, those who perceive their academic success poorly, whose monthly household income was >3000₺/500$ and those who do not have parental control in internet use(p<0.05). Conclusion: The students’ IA levels are affected by their socio-demographic and internet usage characteristics. Their levels of negative social skills and loneliness increase as their IA level increase.
