Not digital natives

Posted on: March 15, 2018

An article by the the New York Times revealed How the Parkland Students Got So Good at Social Media.

Thankfully the NYT did not mention “digital native”. There is nothing natively digital or digitally native about kids who grow up with technology. They are merely adopting what is available and seems useful.

I am tempted to call such learners digital savvy-ges. The digital savvy-ges described in the article:

  • Switched to more relevant tools or platforms
  • Learnt how to use them on the run
  • Toned and hone their voices
  • Learnt to be responsible with their tools and voices

We can all be digital savvy-ges if we follow this shortlist.
