“The myth of digital whizzkids
The myth of the digital whizzkid needs to be challenged for four reasons:
First, because it mistakenly assumes that young people effortlessly adopt digital technology into their lives because they are into the technology;
Secondly, because the myth of digitally savvy children is actually an expression of adult confusion about how to conduct their relations with children, which has little to do with children’s relationship to the new media;
Third, because it flatters children instead of critically engaging them in a quest to engage more fully with the technology itself; to understand the science and mathematics behind the magic of the digital world;
Fourth, because by reducing adults to the level of children in need of expert guidance, it infantilises serious questions regarding collaboration in the workplace.”
