The Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University released a new report from the Youth and Media project: “Youth and Digital Media: From Credibility to Information Quality". The authors reviewed literature at the intersection of digital media, youth and information quality - primarily works from library and information science, sociology, education and selected ethnographic studies. The top four findings:
1. Search shapes the quality of information that youth experience online.
2. Youth use cues and heuristics to evaluate quality, esp. visual and interactive elements.
3. Content creation and dissemination foster digital fluencies that can feed back into search and evaluation behaviors.
4. Information skills acquired through personal and social activities can benefit learning in a social context.
