Google generation needs knowbuddies

‘Information Behaviour of the Researcher of the Future’

From resource shelf... "A new report, commissioned by JISC and the British Library, counters the common assumption that the ‘Google Generation’ – young people born or brought up in the Internet age – is the most adept at using the web. The report by the CIBER research team at University College London claims that, although young people demonstrate an ease and familiarity with computers, they rely on the most basic search tools and do not possess the critical and analytical skills to asses the information that they find on the web."

My bet is that this resonates with knowbodies everywhere!
