What is a Digital Native?

Marc Prensky coined the term DIGITAL NATIVE in his work Digital Natives, Digital Immigrants published in 2001.
“A digital native is a person who was born during or after the general introduction of digital technology, and through interacting with digital technology from an early age, has a greater understanding of its concepts. Alternatively, this term can describe people born in the latter 1960s or later, as the Digital Age began at that time; but in most cases the term focuses on people who grew up with the technology that became prevalent in the latter part of the 20th century, and continues to evolve today.
Other popular discourse identifies a digital native as a person who understands the value of digital technology and uses this to seek out opportunities for implementing it with a view to make an impact.” – wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_native)
