‘They [the Google Generation] need to feel constantly connected to the web’

I feel this is a myth for the google generation, however it is true for me.

‘They are the “cut-and-paste” generation’

The report found this to be true

‘They pick up computer skills by trial and error’

I think that this statement is true.

The report found this to be myth


‘They are expert searchers’

I think this statement is a myth. Aklthough young people may belive they are expert searcher, I think in general tey lack the skills required to get the most out of a search engine or database.

The report found this to be a  Myth
