Learning with 'e's: Theories for the digital age: The digital natives discourse

Is learning in the 21st Century significantly different to learning in previous years? One of the more controversial theories of the digital age is the claim that technology is changing (or rewiring) our brains (Greenfield, 2009) whilst some also claim that prolonged use of the Web is detrimental to human intellectual development (Carr, 2010). It could be argued that these theories stem back to the seminal claim of Marshall McLuhan (1964) that ‘we shape our tools and thereafter, our tools shape us.’ This belief was also the basis for the in Digital Natives and Immigrants theory (Prensky, 2001), a persistent discourse that has greatly influenced the thinking of educators in recent years. A significant body of work has arisen around the Digital Natives and Immigrants theory, including descriptions of younger students as ‘the Net Generation’ (Tapscott, 1998), ‘Screenagers’ (Rushkoff, 1996), ‘Born Digital’ (Palfrey and Gasser, 2008), ‘Millennials’ (Oblinger, 2003), and ‘Homo Zappiens’ (Veen and Vrakking, 2006). The latter theory suggests that younger students learn differently, through searching rather than through absorbing, through externalising rather than through internalising information, are better at multitasking, and see no separation between playing and learning (Veen & Vrakking, 2006).

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 12, 2013 6:33 PM

The concept that the terminology digital immigrant and digital native is too simplisitic is accurate. I know many who are young and digitally not adept and others who are older and much more adept.

A Look At Google's Massive Library Of Free Lesson Plans | Edudemic | Computer mediated communication | Scoop.it

Did you know that Google offers a sortable library of lesson plansthat are free to download and use? It’s part of the company’s big push into education (seems to be quite the trend these days) and involves thousands of free lesson plans just waiting for you to try out.

 

Most incorporate Google products but then again so do most high-tech lesson plans these days. You can sort the listings by the type of Google product you want or, if that’s not your cup of tea, view the plans organized by subject. That’s probably the best way to go for most Edudemic readers.
