Downunder kids excel digitally

Aussie and Kiwi teenagers among the world’s best at digital reading skills

The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development has graded Australasian 15-year-olds second-best at digital reading skills in the world. Top ranking is Korea, with Australia and New Zealand equal second.

The tests are just like the old ones in print, but the students use screens and mouses (mice?) instead of pen and paper.

At first I thought that "digital reading" was a reference to braille.
