The Net Gen Skeptic blog

Mark Bullen, who writes the Net Gen Skeptic blog, has found two more articles supporting his thesis that there is no such thing as the "net gen".

The blog was set up to "...  provide a balanced exploration of research and commentary on the impact of digital technologies on higher education. This blog is part of the research project, Digital Learners in Higher Education: Implications for Teaching, Learning & Technology, which aims to develop a deeper understanding of the role of digital technology in higher education, how learners use technology for academic, social and other purposes and how those uses are related."

Since April 2008, Bullen has been collecting the evidence that debunks the idea that "the young" are more competent or more avid users of technology.

He makes a convincing case.
