Tech-Savvy Doesn't Mean Internet-Savvy
from eCampus News
Many people, pundits and educators alike, operate under the assumption that the current generation of students is the most technologically savvy in history. While today's young people certainly are surrounded by technology, and they use it in their everyday lives, this is not the same as mastering technology as a task-specific learning tool, especially for gathering online information for research reports, reviews and syntheses. While the vast majority of students may consult their smart phones dozens of times a day to view Facebook and Instagram or to send text messages, far fewer know how to access and evaluate quality information online to help them complete academic tasks and assignments.
