Digital Immigrant Interviews

Digital Native vs. Digital Immigrant

Work Time

Read and annotate the article, “Digital Native vs. Digital Immigrant? Which Are You?” by Thomas G. Plante.

Take quotations from Plante’s article to answer the same questions you posed during your interviews:

  • What technology makes him the most uneasy? Why?
  • What is the most unfamiliar or disturbing thing he sees young Digital Natives do with their technology?
  • Does he wish he could go back to a time when people didn’t use technology to connect socially? Why or why not?
  • Why does he feel younger people have an advantage in adapting to new technology?
