  5. 5. According to Marc Prensky's Article: (Do They Learn Differently? Neuorscience says YES!) quot;Children raised with the computer ―think differently from the rest of us. They develop hypertext minds. They leap around. It’s as though their cognitive structures were parallel, not sequential.
  6. 6. ―Linear thought processes that dominate educational systems now can actually retard learning for brains developed through game and Web-surfing processes on the computer. Some have surmised that teenagers use different parts of their brain and think in different ways than adults when at the computer. We now know that it goes even further—their brains are almost certainly physiologically different.
  7. 7. But these differences, most observers agree, are less a matter of kind than a difference of degree. For example as a result of repeated experiences, particular brain areas are larger and more highly developed, and others are less so.quot; Marc Prensky Digital Natives Digital Immigrants ©2001 Marc Prensky www.marcprensky.com/writings

  14. 14. ...that technology is just a “pipe” through which content flows to passive receivers; and that the role of society is to monitor and control the flow—and thus control the “problem.” Elizabeth Thoman, Federal Communications Law Journal May 2003
