Digital natives, this expression has entered the common language to define 21st-century students in any discussion on the need to introduce digital competence in the School.
It is an expression used to argue that children, having been born in an era in which digital devices are available and are normally used, if not abused, are already sufficiently digitally capable. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Young people know the web and the digital language, but in 90% of cases, their online activities are restricted to social networks, chats and entertainment applications.
If we make a parallel with the native expression in the linguistic field, the native is an individual able to understand the language and above all to speak in that language, express himself correctly, and produce content in a fluid and spontaneous way. It is therefore clear that the expression 'digital natives' is very misleading. The kids use technology passively, risking growing as customers of the Big Web. Digital competence is another thing. And the School knows this very well.
CERTIPASS, in addition to having carried out specific teaching and certification programs aimed at teachers and students from 7 years of age, supports Schools in funded projects dedicated to the development of digital competence in the School.
