As a start for this blog, let me suggest reading Art Levine's "Digital Natives and their Customs": from the November 4th issue of the Sunday New York Times Education Life section:

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/11/04/education/edlife/arthur-levine-discusses-the-new-generation-of-college-students.html?_r=1&

Key findings: digital natives, pragmatic, personally optimistic but pessimistic about the future of the country, interested in global issues, deal well with diversity, fear failure, extremely close to their parents, not very good at face-to-face relationships, prefer casual hook-ups to romanticism.
