Students are different<br />Students 30 years ago<br />・<br />・<br />・<br />Digital immigrants<br />Students today<br />・<br />・<br />・<br />Digital Natives<br />Were born into the digital world…have been involved with the new technologies<br />Developed the digital world…have been exposed to less technologies<br />
Differences between<br /> Digital Natives(students today ) <br />And<br /> Digital Immigrants(students 30 years ago)<br />What do they prefer…..? According to Ian Jukes and Anita Dosaj, The InfoSavvy Group, February 2003<br />
Students today prefer…<br />receiving information quickly from multiple multimedia sources<br />parallel processing and multitasking.<br />processing pictures, sounds and video before text<br />random access to hyperlinked multimedia information<br />to interact/network simultaneously with many others<br />to learn “just-in-time”<br />instant gratification and instant rewards<br />learning that is relevant, instantly useful and fun<br />
Students 30 years ago prefer…<br />slow and controlled release of information from limited sources<br />singular processing and single or limited tasking<br />to provide text before pictures, sounds and video<br />to provide information linearly, logically and sequentially<br />students to work independently rather than network and interact<br />to teach “just-in-case” (it’s on the exam)<br />deferred gratification and deferred rewards<br />to teach to the curriculum guide and standardized tests<br />
The Differences around students<br />Tools<br />・Teaching / Learning tools <br /> the Internet, audio, video…<br />Environments<br />・Learning environments<br /> online classes<br />・Everyday life<br /> TV, video games, the Internet, iPod…<br />Society<br />The differences around students affect their changes<br />
Students are different<br />The brain changes and organizes itself differently based on the inputs it receives <br /> from “Do They Really Think Differently?” by Marc Prensky<br />People are changing and developing themselves depending on the needs they have in their life. Students are living in a different world than the one digital immigrants were in. Students have changed because they are always using new technologies. This is similar to the way our ancestors developed languages for their communication out of necessity.<br />
Instructional Technology in the Classroom <br /> Students today are different. It doesn’t mean they can not learn , or that we can not teach.<br /> They have preferences for learning , so if the method teachers use match their style of learning, they could learn more effectively.<br />My teaching<br /> As a teacher, we should be flexible and adaptable. I would try different types of technology in my class and find out what teaching style matches with my students. Also I would pay attention to what is going on in our society today and keep myself updated because I think education is influenced by society.<br />
Summarize of Findings<br />I uploaded my Power Point Presentation…<br /> I couldn’t import my file to Google Docs because my file was “pptx”.<br />I changed my file to “ppt”…<br /> I couldn’t hear the sound I inserted in.<br /> some transparent pictures have showed up as opaque<br />Advantages of PowerPoint<br /> Wide variety of choice and features<br /> ex) template, font and etc.<br />Advantages of Google Docs<br /> Everyone can use the application anywhere with the Internet.<br />
