Definition - What does Digital Native mean?A digital native is an individual who was born after the widespread adoption of digital technology. The term digital native doesn't refer to a particular generation. Instead, it is a catch-all category for children who have grown up using technology like the Internet, computers and mobile devices. This exposure to technology in the early years is believed to give digital natives a greater familiarity withand understanding of technology than people who were born before it was widespread.


Another way of looking at generations... or is it all a myth?

Definition - What does Digital Immigrant mean?A digital immigrant is an individual who was born before the widespread adoption of digital technology. The term digital immigrant may also apply to individuals who were born after the spread of digital technology and who were not exposed to it at an early age. Digital immigrants are the opposite of digital natives, who have been interacting with technology from childhood.

So what do you all think? Technically, I'm a Digital Immigrant, but in this context, I think GenX is the one generation that comes out as somehow in between Immigrant and Native. I lived 10 years before the Digital Age really came to be. I was there right at the beginning. I was about 22 before I ever got online.

I don't consider myself as a baby boomer
I consider myself as a 55 y/o human
