Digital Residents Natives

  1. 1. Digital Natives v. Digital Residents
  2. 2. Marc Prensky coined the terms @ Digital Native @ Digital Immigrant in 2001 to attempt to differentiate between the types of digital learners.
  3. 3. • Born into the age of technology • Grew up interacting at a young age • Think and process information differently • Easy understand concepts @ Digital Native
  4. 4. • Born before introduction of digital tools/resources • Have to adapt to this new environment • Retain an ‘accent’ from the past @ Digital Immigrant
  5. 5. “Digital Immigrant instructors, who speak an outdated language, are struggling to teach a population that speaks an entirely new language.” @ Digital Immigrant
  6. 6. • Is really about age? • You are either one or the other? • Always have an accent? • If you are an Immigrant, does this give you an excuse not to use technology? Digital Immigrant v. Digital Native
  7. 7. David White argues that the Digital Native and Digital Immigrant paradigm is outdated and doesn’t account for the social web. He suggests; @ Visitors @ Residents
  8. 8. • Use the web for social learning • Use the web for many aspects of their lives • Develop an identity • See the web as venue for social life @ Digital Residents
  9. 9. • Use the web as a ‘tool’ to accomplish specific tasks • Do not use the web for social interactions • See learning as a private interaction @ Digital Visitors
  10. 10. • Can you be both? • Is it about age? • What controls what you are? • If you are a Visitor, do you have an excuse not to use technology? Digital Visitor v. Digital Resident
