The development of children's Web searching skills - a non-linear model

The development of children's Web searching skills - a non-linear model. This article is by AnnBritt Enochsson. It appeared in Information Research, 11(1), October, 2005.

As I have a 3 and 7 year old at home, I found this article interesting. I have helped both use the Web to find things (usually pictures) and I have been amazed at what they can do on their own.

From the abstract:

The aim of this article is to determine the various skills necessary for seeking information on the Internet in educational settings. Throughout the article there is also an aim to present the students' perspective on possibilities and difficulties when using the Internet.
