Home computers make kids dumber?

It’s pretty much an article of faith among university education gurus that our current crop of students, the "millenials," are smart and computer literate.  I say that’s rubbish, based on their classroom performance.  They can text, email, maintain a Facebook page, and download p0rn and half-assed essays. Confronted by a spreadsheet or a database, most of them are deer in the headlights.  Now some geniuses at Duke University have data to back this up. Nice that someone’s noticed.
