„Much has been said recently about the apparent expertise of children using electronic resources, and there are claims that young people are using the Internet more creatively and are becoming more proficient in their use than their teachers, that they tend in any case to be more proficient using information technologies than are their parents or teachers and that they are, in short, ‘technologically savvy’. Indeed, this is the popular perception of young people and information technology generally. But there is no evidence in the serious literature that young people are expert searchers, nor that the search skills of young people has improved with time.“
