Abstract

Students today can access unlimited information online, and can do so, according to‘generational digital divide’ rhetoric, without assistance. This paper explores the extent towhich ‘generational digital divide’ rhetoric is supported by the discourse accompanying onlinesearch in five Australian home-schools. Observations and interviews were analysed usingCritical Discourse Analysis. During search, discourse assumed greater student skill. Ininterview, however, parents and students reported doubt in the students’ search proficiency.Growing reliance upon search by increasing numbers of home-schoolers warrants greaterunderstanding of such technology and its role in learning.
