Abstract

People's lives are being transformed by increasing use of the Internet, which affects not only the way they work, but also the way they learn, behave, store and remember information.In the business world, this phenomenon is considered normal and nonharmful. However, a few research have studied the phenomenon, especially with regard to digital natives' behavior and perceptions. Therefore, this study is aimed to examine the influence of digital literacy self-efficacy and technology acceptance on digital amnesia behaviour of digital natives. Three studies have been conducted at Universitas Islam Negeri Ar-Raniry Banda Aceh, Indonesia.The first study used a descriptive quantitative approach by a survey method to identify nomophobia, Google effect, and digital amnesia among 110 students. The second study used a true experimental design with a post-test-only control group to investigate the effect of the phenomenon on memory retention and knowledge construction involving 40 students. The third study, an inferential quantitative approach with survey method was conducted among 375 students to examine the influence of digital literacy self-efficacy and digital technology acceptance on digital amnesia. In the first study, a Google form survey was used, while in the second study, 20 easy questions and a 5- minute video clip were used. The Structural Equation Modeling approach was applied in the third study and the sample size recommendation in PLS-SEM for a statistical power of 80% by Cohen (1992) was used as a sampling procedure. The first study revealed 83.9% of students experience Internet dependency, with 72% perceiving the phenomenon as normal. The second study revealed nomophobia, Google effect, and digital amnesia behaviour weakened memory retention and knowledge construction.In the third study, digital literacy self-efficacy and digital technology acceptance were found to negatively influence digital amnesia behaviour. These studies offer new insights into how digital technology can be used in the social sciences and educational fields efficiently, effectively, and positively.
