DIGITAL NATIVES…REALLY?

Digital Natives are persons born or brought up during this age of digital technology who are quite familiar with computers and the Internet from an early age.

Most if not all of the digital tools that are reshaping our lives make much more sense to these young experts than to members of older generations. Interestingly though, the following video demonstrates that while they literally ‘eat and drink’ these ICTs daily, they are totally unaware of the term ‘Web 2.0’.

  1. Hey Nat, I enjoyed reading your article tonight. It was very inspiring and I truly understand how much the information age is changing but in society we still have the Digital Natives.

    Thanks for sharing.

  2. Hi Natalie, interesting point. I have to add, thoug that this has been the case even with Web 1.0. I remember stating in a chat room when I was in school that I was having trouble with the web connection, and one of the people in the chat room asked “What is that?” They had me questioning myself for a minute!
