It is free, but they make money by having stock images you can buy for $1 a piece if you want them.

Ten Reasons New Teachers Aren't Using Technology | Spencer Ideas

Ten Reasons New Teachers Aren't Using Technology | Spencer Ideas | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

When asked about the importance of educational technology, only a few rated it as important. I'd love to say that this is because technology has become normal and ubiquitous. However, that doesn't seem to be the case. Many of the future teachers said things like, "technology is a great thing when it works," or "I did fine without technology" or even "I think it's distracting to real learning."

Revisiting Digital Natives, Digital Immigrants

Revisiting Digital Natives, Digital Immigrants | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

As with many ideas which may be simply stated Prensky’s world of ‘Digital Natives and Immigrants’ has been oversimplified and misunderstood. In part this is the danger that comes with relying upon a cultural metaphor and a consequence of society’s love affair with neat dichotomies.


Via Nik Peachey
Ricard Garcia's insight:

Prensky's ideas in 2001 proved to be really significant... time to see if they fit into today's present reality!

Dr. Laura Sheneman's curator insight, October 23, 2015 9:50 AM

"Prensky’s analysis continues to spark debate and that is a positive thing. The reality of how our supposedly Digital Natives or Immigrants engage with technology and learning reveals a more complex landscape than a simple dichotomy allows for. A richer subculture analysis is required where individual narrative of technologies meanings may be revealed"

Angela C. Dowd's curator insight, October 24, 2015 12:06 PM

Crucially, the outcome of being digitally fluent relates to issues of responsibility, equity and access. We all have the right to fully participate in a digitally-enabled education system and in an increasingly digitised society. If we work with fluency in the way we use technologies, we are able to keep ourselves safe online and take full advantage of life chance opportunities such as being able to apply for work, manage our finances, or be part of our local community

En pleno Siglo XXI las competencias digitales se han convertido en un requisito indispensable para la sociedad, tanto en el trabajo como en el día a día de las personas. Por ello se pide el reconocimiento de las competencias digitales como habilidades básicas esenciales.
