  12. 12. Advocacy "There is a myth about the digital native and the Google generation kid who, because they are young, are seen as being more computer literate than their parents, but that is totally wrong. Kids can be very fluid and fast with computers, but they are only fast when they are doing something they have had a lot of practice in.” Dr. Dan Russell, Google Research Scientist “Young people’s engagements with digital technologies are varied and often unspectacular” Neil Selwyn, Academic, Monash University, Australia, Aslib. Digital Native Fallacy

Skills for the Workplace Information Worker Productivity Study “Our survey shows that information workers in Western Europe waste a significant amount of time each week dealing with a variety of challenges related to working with documents. This wasted time costs the organization €14,492 per information worker per year and amounts to a loss of 19.5% in the organization's total productivity.”

Cost of IT Ignorance in Singapore  A total of 513 working professionals from across industries participated in the survey  Average time spent... dealing with (ICT) difficulties was found to be 151 minutes per week.  This resulted in S$2,358 wasted for the employer per week 2012 IAL Productivity Research
