Abstract

Recent research indicates that Generation Y is not as tech-savvy as is often portrayed. If this is the case, then assumptions about the information-seeking behaviour of today's students need to be re- assessed. This paper discusses some of the findings of a PhD study on the information-seeking behaviour of Generation Y and the need for schools to become more involved in teaching students how to use the electronic environment effectively.
