After reading both articles and videos I have come to the conclusion that I am neither a digital immigrant or native. Right now I consider myself to be balance. It is good if there is a mixture of traditional and digital because it keeps students thinking critically and allows to them to communicate in all types of ways. Marc Prensky brought up a good point in his article when he said, "Did you get my email?" In correlation to did you get my phone call. With the resources given it appears that students today are missing out on the opportunities for the face to face interactions.

Many students spend time playing video games, watching television, and interacting on cell phones. None which, involve human interaction. The information given has broaden my awareness on the importance of incorporating old teachings in with the new. Though immigrant and native are complete opposite but both need each other to create a successful learning. In the end there is nothing wrong with the way digital immigrants think and the same goes for the natives. It will just take understanding of each others learning and teaching styles then began to adapt and compromise.
