Digital Tourist teaching Digital Natives

It is with great honor and great humility that I begin this journey of writing blogs on my experiences teaching the Digital Natives in this digital language, myself a Digital Tourist. I define myself as a digital tourist because I was born in an era when digital media was just being invented. So, I grew up with physical and analog stuff as my environment and learning world. Now, I am in a totally digitally-dominated world where almost everyone takes all of this reality for granted like we usually take for granted the oxygen we breathe because it is everywhere and it is always there.
Another analogy I can think of is that of a foreign missionary who comes to a foreign mission land, learning the language of the people he is trying to “convert”, on my part, I’m trying to “teach”. And I am learning their language, so that I can communicate to them the content of my teaching. We’ll see what happens next…
