Marc Prensky coined the term "digital native" to describe today's students who have grown up immersed in the world of technology. According to Prensky, the current generation of students actually think and process information much differently than previous generations. Instructors are finding that they must rethink their teaching methods and strategies in order to engage this group of students.
