  • DIGITAL NATIVES, DIGITAL IMMIGRANTS By Marc Prensky Group 1: Cinara, Najla, Neemias, Sonia
  • "A really big discontinuity has taken place." Call it Singularity? "an event which changes things so fundamentally that there is no absolutely going back."
  • “ Today’s students are no longer the people our educational system was designed to teach.” N-gen or D-gen                          = DIGITAL NATIVES
  •  
  • “ ...Digital immigrant instructors who speak an outdated language (that of the pre-digital age) are struggling to teach a population that speaks an entirely new language.”
      • They learn to adapt but retain a certain “accent”
    Digital Immigrants
  • What does "dial" a number mean anyway?
  •  
  •  
  • "...it is very likely that our students´ brains have physically changed - and are different from ours - as a result of how they grew up."
    •  
  • Should the Digital Native students learn the old ways, or should their Digital Immigrant educators learn the new?
  • "...unless we forget about educating Digital Natives...we need to reconsider both our methodology and contents."
    • First - METHODOLOGY - not changing the meaning of what is important...but... going faster less step-by-step more in parallel more random access
  • Second - CONTENTS  Legacy - all of our traditional curriculum, like reading, writing, math, logical thinking...etc. Future - digital and technological contents. Example: hardware, software, robotics, nanotechnology, ethics, politics, sociology...etc.
  • " Edutainment" - education + entertainment Math - "future math" - approximation, statistics, binary thinking... Geography - no need of memorizing names and numbers, cities and capitals. All depends on how it is presented. Games should be created.
  • "We need to invent Digital Native methodologies  for all subjects, at all levels, using our students to guide us."
  • Conclusion  "If Digital Immigrant educators really want to reach Digital Native students - all their students - they will have to change." "Just do it!"
