Both my experience with 18-year-old all-thumbs-on-keyboard students and Siva Vaidhyanathan (and others) have persuaded me that most chatter about Digital Natives is a myth. Some students fit the digital-natives stereotype, but so do a few 60-year-olds I know.

I think the difference for those of us who are "older" is that we did not grow up with most of the technology available today-PCs, Internet, text messaging, etc. and thus, like immigrants, have to "learn the language" that our students are more familiar with. On the other hand, some social networking sites such as Twitter are new to all. Thanks for commenting!
