The Google Generation

The Google Generation examines original and secondary research evidence from international sources to determine whether there is a younger generation of learners who are adopting different styles of information search behaviour from older generations as a function of their patterns of use of online technologies.

Provides a one of the most comprehensive analyses yet on the evolving nature of information search behaviour Combines a review of a wide range of international research evidence combined with original, cutting edge research Directed towards industry end-users and policy makers as well as academics with shared scholarly interests
