  5. 5. Introduction<br />Discontinuity: thinkingpatternshavechanged.<br />
  6. 6. How should we call these “new students” of today ?<br />N-[for Net]-genD-[for Digital]-gen<br />Digital Natives X Digital Immigrants<br />
  7. 7. Digital NativesX Digital Immigrants<br />Answer these questions to yourselves:<br />01 – Do you usually turn to the internet for information second rather than first?<br />02 – Do you read the manual for a program rather than assuming that the program itself will teach you how to use it?<br />03 – Do you sometimes print out your email or even a document written on the computer in order to edit it ? <br />04 – Do you sometimes bring people into your office to see an interesting website ?<br />05- Have you ever phoned someone to ask if they had received your e-mail ?<br />
  8. 8. Digital Natives X Digital Immigrants<br />A big problem facing education: digital immigrant instructors are struggling to teach a population that speaks an entirely new language whereas digital natives are being brought up in a population of heavily accented unintelligible foreigners to teach them.<br />
  9. 9. Digital Natives<br />are used to receiving information really fast;<br />like parallel process and multi-task;<br />prefer their graphics before their texts;<br />function best when networked;<br />thrive on instant gratification and instant rewards;<br />prefer games to serious work.<br />
  10. 10. Digital Immigrants<br />have very little appreciation for these new skills that natives have acquired through years of interaction and practice;<br />don’t believe their students can learn successfully while watching TV or listening to music;<br />think that learning can’t be fun;<br />assume that the same methods used to teach them in the past will work for their students now. <br />

  12. 12. Methodologyandcontent<br />First, ourmethodology. <br />Second, our content . Two kinds: <br />“Legacy” content includes reading, writing , arithmetic, logical thinking, understanding the writings and ideas of the past, etc. – all of our traditional curriculum.<br />“Future” content is to a large extent, not surprisingly, digital and technological. But while it includes software, hardware, robotics, nanotechnology, genomics, etc. it also includes the ethics, politics, sociology, languages and other things that go with them. <br />
  13. 13. Methodologyandcontent<br />As educators, weneed to bethinkingabouthow to teachboth “Legacy” and “Future” content in the language of the Digital Natives.<br />Thefirstinvolves a major translationandchangeofmethodology; thesecondinvolvesall that + new content and thinking.<br />
