There are multiple ways of characterizing the young English teacher whose age range is between 18 and 23 years old. On the one hand, it is believed that he/she is a digital native teacher; alternatively, this teacher is widely trained to manage digital environments and relevant pedagogical strategies as a part of his/her educational processes. According to the above, this research aims to analyze; if that belief is accurate in the current pandemic situation. For this purpose, it was adopted a descriptive qualitative research; with a group of 30 students in their last semesters who are doing their teaching practice in some schools in Bogota, Colombia. The collection instruments used were a structured interview and a survey. It is concluded that the process of training young English teachers should lead to projecting the technology to the school, thus renewing the experiences gained during the pandemic.
Key words: Digital native, digital competence, young English teacher.
