The digital native thingy

June 26, 2007 at 7:14 am Leave a comment

I knew that my obsession with video style games such as Morrowind and Oblivion was not just a case of my being a “gaming granny” but something a bit more deep and meaningful. Now, as reported in insidehighered.com, College and university librarians have some unconventional advice: Play more video games. When ‘Digital Natives’ Go to the Library.
This irks me somewhat in that it categorises librarians once again using the Digital Native/Digital Immigrant tags. I recently attended “Nerd School”, hoping to become more familiar with new terminology and usage of new technologies, but was instead subjected to a test to see whether I was an immigrant or a native. I defy many so-called “natives” to achieve as high a score as I got! I suffer from insatiable curiosity and am always trying out new things and learning all the time.
