Digital Natives, Digital Immigrants!

Had a session with a group of teachers after school discussing the reading above, it was interesting to hear the thoughts of some but pleasing to hear some positives coming from others.

I was just on Twitter when digitallearnin posted this a slideshow below, I wish I had this this afternoon:

Watch and enjoy!

This slide show and the reading so link so nicely together!


  1. I think that expression "Give a man a fish..." is so applicable to today's education. Lets give them the skills to "fish" for themselves. Then we may realise the dream of life long learners.

  2. Hi Ange,

    I think that Marc Prensky's stuff about digital immigrants/natives is largely rubbish. It is assuming that some can't learn, which is untrue.


  3. Hey Rob

    Interesting I never thought about it from that perspective - Thank you for that, it has differently given me some food for thought to think about!
