Prensky's "Digital Natives/Digital Immigrants" & Simply Music's Percussion & Technology Workshops

The distinguished educator Mark Prensky used the term "digital native" to describe a person that grows up in the digital age, rather than acquiring familiarity with digital systems as an adult, as a "digital immigrant".
