Digital natives digital immigrants

  1. 1. DIGITAL NATIVES, DIGITAL IMMIGRANTS By Marc Prensky Group 1: Cinara, Najla, Neemias, Sonia
  2. 2. "A really big discontinuity has taken place." Call it Singularity? "an event which changes things so fundamentally that there is no absolutely going back."
  3. 3. “ Today’s students are no longer the people our educational system was designed to teach.” N-gen or D-gen                          = DIGITAL NATIVES
  4. 5. “ ...Digital immigrant instructors who speak an outdated language (that of the pre-digital age) are struggling to teach a population that speaks an entirely new language.” <ul><ul><li>They learn to adapt but retain a certain “accent” </li></ul></ul>Digital Immigrants
  5. 6. What does &quot;dial&quot; a number mean anyway?
  6. 9. &quot;...it is very likely that our students´ brains have physically changed - and are different from ours - as a result of how they grew up.&quot;
  7. 10. <ul><li>  </li></ul>
  8. 11. Should the Digital Native students learn the old ways, or should their Digital Immigrant educators learn the new?
  9. 12. &quot;...unless we forget about educating Digital Natives...we need to reconsider both our methodology and contents.&quot;
  10. 13. First - METHODOLOGY - not changing the meaning of what is important...but... going faster less step-by-step more in parallel more random access
  11. 14. Second - CONTENTS  Legacy - all of our traditional curriculum, like reading, writing, math, logical thinking...etc. Future - digital and technological contents. Example: hardware, software, robotics, nanotechnology, ethics, politics, sociology...etc.
  12. 15. &quot; Edutainment&quot; - education + entertainment Math - &quot;future math&quot; - approximation, statistics, binary thinking... Geography - no need of memorizing names and numbers, cities and capitals. All depends on how it is presented. Games should be created.
  13. 16. &quot;We need to invent Digital Native methodologies  for all subjects, at all levels, using our students to guide us.&quot;
  14. 17. Conclusion  &quot;If Digital Immigrant educators really want to reach Digital Native students - all their students - they will have to change.&quot; &quot;Just do it!&quot;
