Digital Natives, Digital Immigrants

Are you a digital native or a digital immigrant?
Are you sure? Do you want to find out? :)
I found a very interesting article about digital natives and immigrants by Marc Prensky. You probably have read it, since it was written five years ago. If not, have a look at my blog for some extracts, or read the whole article. Enjoy.

But one problem may be that students do nto have an email , as they need to get individual invitationf to be able to contribute and edit the blog.Adventures in Educational Blogging: Which Wiki? or The Trouble Without Email
