Calling smartphone equipped teenagers 'digital natives' is a mistake because a smartphone makes you a consumer rather than a native of anything.

If you want a child to become a digital native give them an actual computer instead of a corporate controlled and curated consumer device.


I suggested something similar recently and was told something along the lines of "Oh! you would be surprised what the kids these days are capable of with phones"

I wonder if people see kids being super-fast at participating in the consumer/consumed phone game and think wow. So "native".

Maybe, there might be something to be said for say, creative video production using only a smart phone. or anything really that can happen in Airplane Mode?
