Do You Have the Fluency of a Digital Native? Take this test to find out.

There's been a lot of talk about the appropriateness of the terms Marc Prensky came up with at the turn of the century, Digital Natives and Digital Immigrants. Some argue, the students aren't "really" native speakers of the digital language of computers, cell phones, video games and the Internet.  In fact they argue, often their students know very little about technology.  If that's true, I say shame on the adult for not ensuring students have the access they need to be fully immersed in today's digital environment.  Regardless of how you see yourself, when it comes to being a Digital Native or Digital Immigrant, the reality is that it is less about when you were born and more about how you engage in our digital world today.  This test is designed to see where you, your colleagues, and your students fall on the continuum. To find out where you fall, take the test and share your results.
