In many jurisdictions, the use of computer-based learning tools is endorsed at a curricular level. Looking at how children search, select, organize and visually represent information can challenge our assumptions about learning and technology, to guide the design of effective learning tools. We report on the preliminary findings from a study involving 43 Grade 5 students designed to explore the effect of information presentation in print and CD-ROM encyclopedias on children's retrieval of information and design of posters. We outline the effects of prior media experience, topic knowledge and attitude towards using interactive reference media to do research. Children may come to a research task with flexible strategies and mental models. Ease, convenience and speediness of use, and the availability and relevance of information may be as important as information presentation.
