在家自學在美國已行之有年,選擇自學的家庭主要是基於宗教信仰及對學校環境的擔憂。台灣自民國86年起發展在家自學已有十年以上,根據95至97學年度的統計,自學人數增長了一倍,由此可見在家自學人口增加快速。但在台灣,在家自學對許多人來說仍是較陌生的教育方式。對在家自學者而言,擁有相關團體的支持是重要的。現今許多在家自學團體均成立網站提供相關資訊,也設立網路論壇提供在家自學者可交流的空間。因此本研究採用網路民族誌,以注重中國經典讀經教育的「在家自學園地」為例,分析讀經在家自學者的網路論壇資訊行為,歸納其資訊需求,做為了解在家自學者的開始。The history of homeschooling in the United States can be traced back to several decades ago. The main reasons parents choose to homeschool their children are religion and concerns for the school environment. Since 1997, homeschooling has become a legitimate option for parents in Taiwan. According to the statistics, the number of homeschoolers has doubled during the school years 2006 and 2008, which is a rapid growth. However, homeschooling still is an alternative educational model that is unfamiliar to the public in Taiwan. It is important for homeschoolers to have support groups so that information and experience can be exchanged. Nowadays many homeschool associations has set up websites to provide related information, including network forums, such as discussion boards, on the websites to function as a media that everyone who is interested in, or is homeschooling, can come and share their thoughts and experience. This research uses netnography and takes homeschoolers, who intend to help their children to learn the Chinese Classic Literature, as an example to analyze homeschoolers’ information behavior on the network forum and examine their information needs as a mean to understand homeschoolers.
