Digital Natives can be defined as a person born during the age of digital technology and therefore familiar with computers and the internet from birth. These are the kids whom pictures were posted all over Facebook and Instagrams when they were born. These are the kids that were giving iPads at the age of 1. Digital Natives are the kids that are provided smartphones at the age of 6.
These digital natives are such experts in technology that their parents believe that there is no need for mentoring or parenting around technology. We have all heard parents say “My child knows much more than I will ever know about technology.”
