Responsible Digital Citizenry

by Michelle Ciccone; JFYNetWorks Blended Learning Specialist

We call young people today “digital natives” because they’ve never known a time when the Internet, smart phones and social networks were not a part of everyday life. We believe that young people are somehow naturally endowed with certain capabilities when it comes to working with digital devices and the Internet.

While this may seem true because we older folks struggle to keep up with the ever-changing technological landscape – feeling like “digital immigrants” on the flipside of the “digital native” narrative – assuming that all young people have these capabilities glosses over the actual experience for so many in the infosphere.
