”It happened so fast” : a study about 15-year old girls and their use of Internet from a source critical perspective (English)
Abstract [en]

This Masters thesis aims at investigating how 15-year old girls use the Internet, particularly on their free time, taking a source critical perspective. It includes group interviews. The main question of this thesis was whether there is a need for specific user education. The following four questions were asked: What do they do on the Internet during their free time? In what way do the girls learn how to interact with each other on the Internet? How do they relate to different types of web pages and materials from a source critical aspect? What content do they consider to be relevant in a user education? The study is mainly focused on information use and information behaviour in different contexts. The reason for this is that society of today requires explicit skills to manage the increasing information flow. Christine Bruce has presented a theory of information literacy and I wanted to see if it was possible to apply her theory model on my interview groups. My theoretical framework, and analyses, also builds on socio cultural theories. Among other things my empirical material shows that the students need more education in order to handle different demands; this includes information seeking and discussions about moral and ethical dilemmas. The students also believed that teachers couldn’t help out as much as they wanted due to their lack of familiarity with the Internet.
