  9. 9. The Disconnect? Is it a Continuum? Digital Native Learners Digital Immigrant Teachers Prefer receiving information quickly Prefer slow and controlled release from multiple multimedia sources. of information from limited sources. Prefer parallel processing & multitasking. Prefer single or limited tasking. Prefer processing pictures, sounds, and video before text. Prefer to provide text before pictures, sounds, and video. Prefer random access to hyperlinked multimedia information. Prefer to provide information linearly, logically, and sequentially. Prefer to interact/network simultaneously with many others. Prefer students to work independently rather than network and interact. Prefer to learn “just-in-time.” Prefer to teach “just-in-case” (it’s on the exam). Prefer learning that is relevant, instantly useful, and fun. Prefer to teach to the curriculum guide and standardized tests. *Ian Jukes and Anita Dosaj, The InfoSavvy Group, February 2003
