A survey of US teenagers has revealed that they see their teachers as backward when it comes to the internet.
The national survey commissioned by the Pew Research Center found that, while today's wired youth go online constantly to keep up in school, they believe that most of their teachers don't have a clue about the web.
"These kids think it's a pity that their schools don't 'get it' the way they do," said Sousan Arafeh, a research director for the study.
The Digital Disconnect report explained that a "digital generation gap" exists between internet-savvy students and their teachers.
Three-quarters of US teenagers go online, often in connection with schoolwork outside of the school day, with little direction from their teachers.
While state and federal governments have made a big push to decrease student-to-computer ratios over the past five years, not enough attention has been given to technical support and teacher training, the report concluded.
