This paper describes an analysis of children's Web browsing behavior during information communication technology (ICT) classes at an elementary school. Children's page viewing times for Web pages were specifically analysed. Results revealed that younger children viewed pages for significantly shorter periods of time when compared to older children. Based upon our observations we believe that these differences are attributable to the child's reading ability. These findings suggest that for younger students teachers should assess a web site's suitability by taking factors such as the child's educational stage of development and reading skill into account.
