  47. 47. 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)
  48. 48. Look At This Savvy Kid!
  49. 49. zOMG, Look at the Learning!
  50. 50. Salad is Amazing!
  51. 51. “... age is not a determining factor in students’ digital lives; rather, their familiarity 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.”
  52. 52. 21st Century Readers/Writers Must ...• Develop proficiency with the tools of technology.• Build relationships with others to pose & solve problems collaboratively and cross culturally.• Design and share information for global communities to meet a variety of purposes.• Manage, analyze, & synthesize multiple streams of simultaneous information.• Create, critique, and analyze multimedia texts.• Attend to the ethical responsibilities required by these complex environments.
