Children's and Young People's Reading in 2015

Children's and Young People's Reading in 2015 | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it
This report outlines findings about children’s and young people’s reading from our sixth annual literacy survey conducted in November/December 2015. 32,569 young people aged eight to 18 participated.
Lourense Das's insight:
"The National Literacy Trust's sixth annual survey of 32,569 children and young people reveals a gulf in reading enjoyment and attitudes between primary and secondary school pupils. The report shows that just 40.2% of Key Stage 4 pupils (age 14 to 16) say they enjoy reading, compared with 72.6% of Key Stage 2 pupils (age 8 to 11). Older students are also less likely to say reading is cool, or see the link between reading attainment and employment." With thanks to Sarah McNicol.

A study of the information search behaviour of the millennial generation

A study of the information search behaviour of the millennial generation | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it

Members of the millennial generation (born after 1982) have come of age in a society infused with technology and information. It is unclear how they determine the validity of information gathered, or whether or not validity is even a concern.
