A Nice Graphic Featuring Differences between Digital Natives and Digital Immigrants

The terms digital natives and digital immigrants were first coined by Mark Prensky to distinguish between what is called  now the net generation or generation Z and generation Y and X. If you are not et familiar with these labels here is an illustrative quote I brought your from an earlier post I published here a while ago.

  • Baby Boomers: These are people who were born after world war II roughly between 1946- 1967
  • GenerationX: Born early to mid 1960s to early 1980s.
  • GenerationY: Often called mellinials. Born 1980 to late 1990s
  • Generation Z: Born 2000 on
However, today while I was checking my feeds I came across this wonderful graphic that captures the main salient differences between digital immigrants and digital natives. I found it through the almighty Edudemic.

  1. Sincerely, some of the people you call *immigrants* have BUILT and invented the digital world for their digital sons. While I have nothing against immigrants "in se", calling immigrant someone that built the country you live in from scratch is quite insulting, in my opinion. I am a non digital native, and call a camera "digital" as I have known non-digital ones, but that doesn't mean I don't know what a CCD is and how it works (like I did know what a reflex was). I wouldn't call my father an immigrant too, as he has been keen on tecnology all his life, and the fact that he is not familiar with newest stuff doesn't make him less part of the world we all have built.
