Cartoons on Digital Natives and Immigrants

The interactions between technology-wise children and their parents or other adults is raw material for cartoonists. I am not sure whether “digital natives” is a category that I would use but it is popular. After the cartoons, take a look at the at the article from The Chronicle of Higher Education that strips away the notion of “digital natives.” Enjoy!

Finally, an article about current college students, “Confronting the Myth of the ‘Digital Native,’ ” gets at the holes in the knowledge bank of older, supposedly more technologically sophisticated, students.

    I have never bought into the “digital native” nonsense

  4. I described Prensky’s phrase as “one of the most pervasive and pernicious concepts in this whole field:” at the ICICTE conference and in a paper I published in 2006. It genuinely dismays me that 12 years later, it’s equally vacuous progeny, “digital literacy” is just as widely and thoughtlessly pursued.
