Students on pedagogical degree courses have grown up with technology and are considered millennials, meaning it is pertinent to describe some aspects of their digital culture in order to better orient their initial teacher training and future professional performance, when all teachers will be digital natives. This paper describes some aspects of the current cultural paradigm and reports the results of an exploratory work conducted with students on pedagogical humanities degree. Using a survey, we inquired about the students’ general characteristics, cyberculture, their level of use of software, their use of technological devices, and their digital skills. The results show that there are no significant differences between the groups compared, and that students seem to have homogeneous characteristics when it comes to their approach to technology.
