The digital revolution has fostered several new terms in todays society. This language directly correlates to our everyday interaction with technological innovations. Technical jargon like “trending”, “selfie”, and “google it” are part of our everyday conversations and have transformed the English language we once learned. In “The current state of digitalization: Digital Native, Digital Immigrant and Digital Settler”, Adile Aşkım Kurt, Slim GÜNÜÇ, and Mehmet Ersoy(2013), explore how our society has reacted to the digital boom and categorized how specific groups interact with digital technology.
I also recommend reading “What does it mean to be a digital native(2012)” by Oliver Joy for CNN. The article discusses the origins of the term “digital native” and how technology has permeated the world as we know it.
