  5. 7. Digital Natives <ul><li>“ Different kinds of experiences lead to different brain structures” - Dr. Bruce D. Berry of Baylor College of Medicine. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>it is very likely that our students’ brains have physically changed – and are different from ours – as a result of how they grew up </li></ul></ul>
  6. 8. Who are the digital natives? <ul><li>Our students today are all “native speakers” of the digital language of computers, video games, instantaneous communication, and the Internet. </li></ul><ul><li>Those of us who were not born into the digital world but have, at some later point in our lives, become fascinated by and adopted many or most aspects of the new technology are Digital Immigrants . </li></ul>
  7. 9. The Challenge <ul><li>Our Digital Immigrant instructors, who speak an outdated language (that of the pre-digital age), are struggling to teach a population that speaks an entirely new language </li></ul>

  13. 15. Web 2.0 Culture <ul><li>Developed Social Networking sites </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Which in turn creates Social Networking Fatigue – “…induced by persistent solicitations to join new social networks.
