And don’t worry.
As Bob Dylan used to sing,“It ain’t me, babe.”
I’ll keep my clothes on.
And… come to find out, a naked digital native isn’t as racy as it sounds, anyway.
A naked digital native is actually someone who chooses to “unplug” and remain free of today’s technological entanglements.
Kind of a rare bird, don’tcha think?
Especially when you see the kids in our schools.
And the rest of us, too, I suppose!
The link I’ve sent you is from MindShift – an insightful NPR partnered website about the future of learning, culture, and technology.
Click here to get to the article about a school where students “attempted” to become naked digital natives for three days.
No doubt, the story will have you imagining how a similar experiment would go over in your schools.
I thought this format was pretty cool – and definitely another idea worth swiping!
Once Jim Camenga, our podcast guru, can explain SoundCloud to me, that is.
You know, as a non-techie, I originally thought about writing this Encourager in the buff.
I figured I could be an honest-to-goodness “naked native”… despite being unable to adequately represent the “digital” part of the triad.

But then I remembered Cindy.
She’s a such a stickler about not letting me just leave my clothes on the floor – or draped over the bed frame – or insisting that I put my clothes away where they belong, I gave up.
She makes getting naked seem like too much work.
