I have spent these past few days reading blogs on the digital Natives website and the one that stuck me most was by Prabhas who was questioning the second part of the name “with a cause” http://digitalnatives.in/prabhas/blogs/questioning-name-part-ii-cause
He wonders wether digital natives really have a cause. When I read this blog, I started asking myself what my exact cause is!! I got my self wondering whether using digital technology meant having a cause…
I must confess that 7 days after the Johannesburg workshop, I can’t still understand who a ‘Digital native’ is. It’s so amazing how one gets into a public gathering and every person has a digital gadget say a phone, ipod, camera…. etc which gets you wondering whether all these people have causes. I hope am not getting myself more confused.
That interaction in Jo’burg truly “opened my eyes” to look at technology differently and from a broader point of view.
I need to understand who a digital native is before it gets too late because I now believe that there is nothing about digital Natives without the digital Natives (Confusing huh?)
