The Digital Mindset

For 12 years, Beloit College has assembled “mindset” lists “to identify the experiences that have shaped the lives—and formed the mindset—of students starting their post-secondary education this fall.” From this year’s list:

4. They have never used a card catalog to find a book.

14. Text has always been hyper.

34. They have always been able to read books on an electronic screen.
