Digital natives or digital immigrants?
Definition   A  digital native  is a person who has grown up with digital technology such as computers, the Internet, mobile phones and MP3. A  digital immigrant  is an individual who grew up without digital technology and adopted it later. A digital native might refer to their new "camera"; a digital immigrant might refer to their new "digital camera".  Wikipedia (M Prensky 2001)
Are you native or immigrant?   del.icio.us
Natives at home….
…… ..at school
Preferences  Learning that is relevant, instantly useful and fun Instant gratification and instant rewards To learn “just-in-time.” To interact/network simultaneously with many others Random access to hyperlinked multimedia information To process pictures, sounds and video before text Parallel processing and multitasking To receive information quickly from multiple multimedia source Digital Native Learners Prefer
Preferences   To teach to the curriculum guide and standardized  tests Deferred gratification and deferred rewards To teach “just-in-case” (it’s on the exam) Students to work independently rather than network and interact To provide information linearly, logically and sequentially To provide text before pictures, sounds and video Singular processing and single or limited tasking Slow and controlled release of information from limited sources Digital Immigrant Teachers Prefer
Immigrants teaching natives…
How  to cope? Learning the new “language”, that is, trying to experiment  with technology try Web 2 “tools” first hand  work co-operatively interact  network multitask share (ideas, experiences, materials, expertise….)
How can you do that? Joining  Becoming a Webhead  or another online  Community at  Evonline ,  a Professional Development Project sponsored by TESOL International collaborative, online discussion sessions or hands-on virtual workshops held every year in January and February  last for six weeks offer seminars on ESOL relevant topics sessions are free and open to TESOL members and non-members
What for? To become a well integrated  digital immigrant if not a  digital native  … that is to deal with Web-based communication tools (web 2 tools) be introduced to CMC for EFL/ESL learn how to blend  ICT and CMC in one’s daily practice  Learn how to use technologies in one’s teaching practices
Why? “ In a community of practice members actually work and learn cooperatively and in a multitasking manner.  It seems that teachers nurtured in such constructivist environments become capable of extrapolating the  techniques used in their own scaffolding to the benefit of their student learners”  V. Stevens 2005
The Webhead experience Virtual Groups Text and voice synchronous communication tools  Blogs ,  Wikis ,  Web pages  Podcasting   Virtual classrooms  Online class materials Blended learning
Spin offs Blogs   for   students Blogs   with   students Blogs   for  and  with   colleagues Web  pages Lesson   plans Teaching   materials
Conclusions   “ Joining a community such as  Becoming a Webhead  is a significant advantage and enrichment at the professional and personal levels. It is a pleasant and useful way to learn about and start using different Web-based communication tools, gradually introduce them in your teaching-learning process and, last but not least, meet colleagues from all over the world and thus enhance your professional horizons in unprecedented ways.” D. Gonzales T.  Almeida d'Eça
