    • myth of the digital native
    • Children and young people are described as ‘the collaboration generation’, eager to work togethertowards common goals, share content and draw upon“the power of mass collaboration”. This combination of individualisation and collaboration is often presented as giving young people a propensity to question, challenge and critique. These are individuals who “typically can’t imagine a life where citizens didn’t have the tools to constantly think critically, exchange views, challenge, authenticate, verify, or debunk. The Digital Native - Myth & Reality, Selwyn (2009)

    • Or This?
    • “... age is not a determining factor in students’ digital lives; rather, their familiar and experience using ICTs is more relevant.”
    • “... age is not a determining factor in students’ digital lives; rather, their familiar and experience using ICTs is more relevant.” “... the notion of ‘digital natives’ is inaccurate: those with such attributes are effectively a digital elite. Instead of a new net generation growing up to replace an older analogue generation, there is a deepening digital divide ... characterized not by age but by access and opportunity.”

    • “... in an information-rich world, the wealth ofinformation means a dearth of something else: a scarcity of whatever it is that information consumes. What information consumes israther obvious: it consumes the attention of its recipients. Hence a wealth of information creates a poverty of attention and a need to allocate efficiently among the overabundance of information sources that might consume it. (Herbert Simon, 1971)”

    • deep learning?
    • Deep Learning• “Deep learning is learning that takes root in our apparatus of understanding, in the embedded meanings that define us and that we use to define the world.” (Tagg, 2003)• “Characteristics of deep learning are the integration and synthesis of information with prior learning in ways that become part of one’s thinking & approaching new phenomena and efforts to see things from different perspectives. (Kuh, Chen, Laird, 2007)
    • Models of 21st Century Learning• The Collaborator uses networks of people, knowledge, skills & ideas as sources of learning - emphasis on social interactions.• The Free Agent makes use of continuous, open-ended & life-long styles and systems of learning.• The Wise Analyzer gathers evidence of effective activity, scrutinizes it and applies its conclusions to new problems & new contexts.• The Creative Synthesizer connects across themes and disciplines, cross fertilises ideas, integrates separate concepts & creates new vision and new practice. 21st Century Learning and Learners, Friesen & Jardine (2007)

    • Example #2.2: Power Of (Global) Audience “My student was delighted by the attention her blog post had received; it gave her confidence in her writing and bolstered her enthusiasm for our class.... We were no longer studying an important work of 20th century literature within the narrow context of my syllabus; instead we had become part of a conversation that involved the broader reading public. As a professor, I was displaced from the centre of the conversation, which became more open, distributed and student-driven than it had been before.” Beyond Friending, Gold, 2011
