Welcome to BiblioTech – the podcast about emerging technologies for academics. Your host is Rochelle Mazar, an Emerging Technologies Librarian at the University of Toronto Mississauga.
Every month you can listen in as Rochelle talks about what’s new in technology and what academics should be paying attention to. It’s hard to keep up all of the new software, tools and gadgets. That’s where Rochelle comes in.
Episode 8 – Digital Natives
Generation Y, Millenials, the Net Generation. We’ve all heard the terms to describe them. But a common misconception is that they have a better grasp of technology.
In this episode, Rochelle takes a radical stand and says: just because they were born when computers were in every household, does not make those born after 1980 all-knowing about the Internet or the technology that surrounds it. (Running time: 12:15 mins).
