A survey commissioned by MSN.co.uk has revealed that children understand more about the Internet than they do about books.
When asked 57% of the 1,000 seven to 16-year-olds surveyed knew what a hard drive was – compared to 38% that knew a hardback was a type of book. It is also reported that only 9% of the children asked knew what a preface in a book was – whilst six out of ten knew what a homepage was.
Stuart Anderson of MSN.co.uk told The Mirror: “Kids embrace the net because it’s dynamic, fast, ever-changing and interactive.”
