The Touch-Screen Generation

The Touch-Screen Generation | Digital Media in the primary Classroom 2013 | Scoop.it
Young children—even toddlers—are spending more and more time with digital technology. What will it mean for their development?

Via John Evans
Danny Dibdin's insight:

This is a great article which also has a video which discusses this new phenomenon of young children even toddlers using Ipads and Iphones and whether they are losing something from the typical tactile play, however gaining something from technology.
They discuss whether the use of an Ipad for a young toddler is more addictive than stimulating and engaging, and they discuss in the video whether this is just a new level of engagement and focus that should be seen as a means in which can be used in the educational environment.
There is a suggestion based on the idea that children are more engaged when it comes to a hands on approach and for some reason, touch-screen technologies are a more exciting approach for students in a class-room then the pen and paper means of learning.
As we can see, there is a new generation springing up that the article suggests children are spending on average ''7 hours'' a day using technology and therefore, what does this suggest about the educational field and our teachers pedagogical practices?

50 Digital Media Resources You May Have Missed

50 Digital Media Resources You May Have Missed | Digital Media in the primary Classroom 2013 | Scoop.it
It's been another busy week in the digital world. Catch up on the latest digital media resources with our weekly features roundup.
Danny Dibdin's insight:

This article may be very interesting when exploring with your students the influence and use of news in a stage 3 class. It explores the means in which positive news spreads more rapidly than negative news, however negative news seems to be what our daily news channels focus predominately on. Bad news is good news is a theme in which may be developed within a classroom setting, in which students can articulate why they might think a bad news story is a more exciting one than possible a good one. This is just a useful resource.

Tablets for Thais: Govt to hand out 1.7 million tablets to students and teachers in 'one tablet per child' initiative | Digital Trends

Tablets for Thais: Govt to hand out 1.7 million tablets to students and teachers in 'one tablet per child' initiative | Digital Trends | Digital Media in the primary Classroom 2013 | Scoop.it
In an effort to reduce technology phobia in children and families living in remote areas, the Thai government is set to hand out millions of tablets to schoolchildren in the country in the next couple of years.
Danny Dibdin's insight:

This is an interesting find, as it emphasises the simultaneous need for technology in the education system. The Thai Government is about to hand out 1.7 Million tablets to students across Thailand and in rural areas to create a trend in the new generation that stimulates a confidence in technology, access to information at the touch of a button and an approach which will lead classrooms into a new era of teaching and learning. These students will be able to keep these ipads after 3 years of use in a classroom, which will provide students with a sense of ownership.
What does this say about the use of technology in our educational system? The worlds changing and we as teachers need to get on board so we become at least equally if not better equipped to teach and facilitate learning within this new generation.
