  5. 5. Digital Native Digital Immigrant Born after the 1980s Born before the 1980s Immersed in a world of digital Various levels of exposure to technology technological exposure Have never known the world Have had to assimilate without the internet their world to accommodate digital technology
  6. 6.  connected to friends and the world through technology immediacy: multitask; fast responses to communications experiential: preference to learn by doing highly social: enjoy activities which promote social interaction group work: prefer to work in groups or teams structure: prefer organisation and structure to ambiguity visual (graphics, video) and kinaesthetic learners actively engage in issues of contemporary relevance (Oblinger & Oblinger, 2005)
  7. 7. [ The teacher ]• can be 30, 40, 50 or 60 years of age• educated by traditional teaching methods – authoritarian style, structured, textbook, rote learning, disseminating information, little opportunity for innovation and social interaction• grown up without the INTERNET
  8. 8.  according to Prensky (2001) the different levels of ICT acculturation has resulted in the creation of a digital divide; especially in the way the Digital Native and the Digital Immigrant perceive, use and talk about technology divide is so great that traditional styles of teaching no longer meet the needs of students (Prensky, 2001)

  11. 11. Research indicates today’s Australian students tend to be highly proficient at low level Web 2.0 applications such as surfing the net and social networking.In contrast, their skills in emerging applications such as podcasts or designing web-pages is not as extensive (Bennett et al, 2008).Read my paper to see if patterns in ICT use acrossAustralian students meet global trends.
  12. 12.  implement constructivist learning styles adopt an eLearning paradigm bridge the gap between how students use technology out of school with their in school practices ie wikis, forums, YouTube address personal inadequacies
