Initial queries into the notion of Power Users of Technology

Abstract : In this paper I shall address and investigate some ideas and hypotheses, which I find very important in order to understand the notion of "Power Users of Technology". The Power Users research initiative has noted and emphasises the heavy increase in children's, adolescents' or young people's use of technology. What distinguishes the Power User research initiative and makes it qualitatively different from similar studies is that it is not merely looking into changed patterns in adolescents' use of technology; rather it is claiming that the young people themselves are changing their ways of learning due to the intensified use of technology.
