    • Digital students & Technology  the technology is very much embedded in young generation life their “use and skills are not uniform. There is no evidence of widespread and universal disaffection, or of a distinctly different learning style the like of which has never been seen before.” (Bennett, Maton and Kervin 2008).  there is a ”relation to the links between social disadvantage and digital disengagement”, “technological and social disadvantages are inextricably linked” (Helsper 2008).

    • Digital students & Learning Selwyn’s (2006) indicate also that students, which had an extensive use of technology, were also frustrated that their freedom of use was diminished in the educational environment and “were well aware of a digital disconnect but displayed a pragmatic acceptance rather than the outright alienation from the school that some commentators would suggest
    • Digital students & LearningOblinger, 2005,2009, Raines 2010, Livingstone 2008, 2010 :  Ability to multitask  Preference to learn from pictures, sounds and video rather than text  Interactive and networked activities are their first choice  young people lack key skills in evaluating adequately online content and they are inclined to use it as their own without knowing or understanding the skill of paraphrasing (Livingstone, Bober and Helsper 2005)

    • Is it a Gap?  debate about digital natives represents an academic form of moral panic” (Bennett, Maton and Kervin 2008)  connection between the use of technology and age several others indicates that “learning and technology has nothing to do with generational divides.” (Ponterfact, 2010).  Vaidhyanathan states “there is no such thing as a digital generation”, as he mentions that in every generation there is a similar bell curve for accepting technology (Vaidhyanathan 2008).
