Technology skill and young people

"...there is a  widespread popular belief that young people who have been raised int he digital age have a natural level of comfort and ability with technology.  this belief is beginning to be debunked by research.  Studies that measure information literacy skills, for example demonstrate that not all young people have an affinity for technology and that comfort with technology does not necessarily correlate with skill level.  Likewise, there is a well-documented concern with young adults' level of achievement in content areas such as science, technology, engineering, and math that are needed to fuel the future economy."  -- from: Young Adult Resources Today by Don Latham and Melissa Gross (2014) p.45
