The tech-savvy digital generation of 2014 [infographic]

Tech site ebuyer has compiled an infographic showing the latest research into the rise and rise of digital devices among children aged 3-15. If there’s one thing this generation are, it’s switched on and connected.

The key findings include:

  • 72% of 12-15 year olds own three or more media devices
    Bet they don’t pay for their own wifi
  • 16% of 8-11 year olds own five or more media devices
    FIVE? Really?
  • In an average week, 3-4 year olds spend 6.5 hours on the internet
    That’s a whole lot of CBeebies
  • 18% of 5-7 year olds have uploaded photos to a website
    Clever kids. Perhaps they will explain to their parents how to do that
  • 51% of households with a 3-15 year old have a tablet computer compared to 7% in 2011
    This doesn’t surprise us, since tablets have been coming down in price and have been a popular gift for a few years now

What do you think? Do you recognise your family in this? Is the increase in children having their own digital devices a good or a bad thing for families?
