Digital Natives

Marc Prensky (2001) argues that there are digital natives and digital immigrants and that some of us are the former and some the latter (use Google to find more info on digital natives). He says that digital natives speak the digital dialect and find fluency in the online world. Digital immigrants adapt and survive, but it doesn't mean they grew up 'knowing' about digital technologies.

It can affect what we learn and how we're able to learn it. It can bring clashes or coherence. Which one are YOU? Answer the following questions to find out whether the digital age risks being a pleasure or a pain... or see if you're just getting by regardless.
