Statistics: New Study Measures Digital Natives in Every Country | LJ INFOdocket

Statistics: New Study Measures Digital Natives in Every Country | LJ INFOdocket | Innovation and the knowledge economy | Scoop.it

According to a common myth, today’s young people are all glued to the Internet. But in fact, only 30 percent of the world’s youth population between the ages of 15 and 24 years old has been active online for at least five years. In South Korea, 99.6 percent of young people are active, the highest percentage in the world. The least? The Asian island of Timor Leste with less than 1 percent.

Those are among the many findings in a study from the Georgia Institute of Technology and International Telecommunication Union (ITU).

The study is the first attempt to measure, by country, the world’s “digital natives.” The term is typically used to categorize young people born around the time the personal computer was introduced and have spent their lives connected with technology.

Open Access Publishing Expert Peter Suber on Open Access Publishing Myths | LJ INFOdocket | Innovation and the knowledge economy | Scoop.it
