Immigrants, natives, visitors, residents Prensky vs. White and Le Cornu

I read A new typology for online engagement
by David S. White and Alison Le Cornu. First Monday, Volume 16, Number 9 – 5 September 2011

I compared it to the Prensky article and this is what I came up with

Immigrant

(2001) Prensky

Native Visitor

(2011) White and Le Cornu

Resident
AGE-BASED, LANGUAGE, MANNER APPROACH-BASED, CULTURE-BASED, MOTIVATION
Learns slowly Visual learners Unseen on the net, leaves no trace Visible, trying to keep visibility high
Teaches slowly Multi-tasking and parallel processing Internet is a tool to be used only when needed Networked, social
Individual Short attention spans Works individually, privately Communicative
Step by step Use technology to express themselves Functional Communal, not necessarilycollaborative
Prefers serious work Prefer games to serious work No social persona online Live a portion of their life online, has a persona online
  Content producers Goal-orientated Resident online
  Real-time learners –  instant messages, text messages    
  Function best when networking
