Digital Natives

With the massive adoption of digital technologies on a global scale, the immaterial dimension of cyberspace has pervasively entered our lives. A new model of vital environment that hosts and mediates our actions and interactions and redefines our notion of reality. The latest generations, born and grown up together with the fast development of new technologies, are characterized by social and cognitive dynamics fully formed and structured through the digital dimension. Their experiences offer us today a glimpse of what the so-called Homo digitalis will be.
