Digital Natives, Immigrants and Resistors: An uneasy mix at the College level
Save to My Collections
At a small college in Quebec Canada, serving the English-speaking community, not much was known about Information and Communications Technology (ITC) use among our students. Heritage College took the initiative to collect data on ICT use and knowledge among its students and its impact on information-seeking behaviour. Our goal was to examine the “digital divide” which according to research resides not only between generations, but within them. The research we will be reporting on is based on a voluntary sample of 800 students enrolled in Heritage College in the fall of 2009. We looked at three profiles: the digital natives, the immigrants and the resistors. Results will be presented to explain differences between these three groups. Pedagogical recommendations will be presented.
