- Do students feel as though they are 'powering down' (see this article from Vision) when they enter the school gates/university campus?
- What assumptions do we make about the literacies that digital natives have?
- If digital natives were born after 1982 then how can staff in this age group have input?
- Is age the only/best definition of being a digital native?
- what literacies to today's school students have that Universities need to plan for?
