Abstract

Using the internet or other information communication
technology to acquire information has become common practice. However, reading online changes the way we process and memorise the unbounded information available on the web, compared to reading traditional closed print text. How do we prepare present and future generations for the new and more complex ‘digital literacies’? Are our changing online reading behaviours merely negative for knowledge acquisition, or do they perhaps represent the cognitive mechanisms of the future to successfully deal with information abundance on the internet?
