  8. 8. They [digital natives] have spent their entire lives surrounded by and using computers, videogames, digital music players, video cams, cell phones and all the other toys and tools of the digital age … It is now clear that as a result of this ubiquitous environment and the sheer volume of their interaction with it, today’s students think and process information fundamentally differently from their predecessors.

  11. 12. … our teachers who are digital immigrants see the technology as a series of ‘programs’ or ‘things’ or – in linguistic terms – nouns . Today’s students, if they are ‘native speakers’ of digital technology view it in a very different way. They see technology as the means of getting things done: of communicating, of sharing, of presenting, etc. In linguistic terms our students see technology as verbs .

And then, within the first two minutes, I started hearing rumblings. And then laughter. The sounds were completely irrelevant to what I was saying and I was devastated. I immediately knew that I had lost the audience. Rather than getting into flow and becoming an entertainer, I retreated into myself. I basically decided to read the entire speech instead of deliver it. I counted for the time when I could get off stage. I was reading aloud while thinking all sorts of terrible thoughts about myself and my failures. I wasn’t even interested in my talk. All I wanted was to get it over with. I didn’t know what was going on but I kept hearing sounds that made it very clear that something was happening behind me that was the focus of everyone’s attention. danah boyd
