Student Technology Use
A majority of high school students say they monitor current events at least once a week by using the Internet, and most of the information they are accessing comes from Web portals such as Google and Yahoo!, not from blogs or other informal sites, according to a survey.
The survey of 15,000 high school students—conducted by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation—found that after Internet portals such as Google and Yahoo!, teenagers use national television Web sites, and then local television and daily newspaper Web sites to keep up with current events, according to the survey by the Miami-based foundation, which promotes excellence in journalism.
