Digital Wisdom

I was thinking about the terms “native” and “immigrant” that were coined by Marc Prensky back around 2001, and I stumbled upon this further thinking by Prensky on the terminology. His focus now is on “Digital wisdom.” He says: “Problems too often stem from people making judgments that reflect their own formative cultures, and thinking of those judgments as culture-independent or absolute. Immigrants have to watch out for thinking the way they learned to do things is still the best way. Natives need to realize that they still have to learn many things about technology — and life. That is why it is important that we all learn to work together, with mutual respect, to find Digital Wisdom.” It all comes down to adapting, embracing and changing.
