Well, you may know what I think about the term ‘digital native‘, but this is an interesting infographic… generation-internet

from the 2014 edition of Vodafone Digital Parenting magazine (you can access previous editions), this is always a well-produced magazine, with lots of practical tips. As a mobile provider, Vodafone is clearly keen that parents feel comfortable with their children using technology, and with the support of the government, have continued to provide this material, particularly designed for schools. A good addition to Raising Children in a Digital Age!
