The Problem of Students Feelings of Isolation
- Although internationalization of higher education has played significant role in facilitating intercultural experience, campus-based university also promotes development of feelings of isolation in students. International students always experience limited interaction due to language barriers causing universities to be potentially isolating international students (Schweisfurth & Gu, 2009).
- The internet has become an important tool for communication in the digital world. The use of internet such as social media and social networking services has provided people with the opportunity to communicate with friends, family and acquaintances. Therefore, the internet is a great tool of communication that keeps people connected causing people to feel less isolated.
