There is a new digital divide on the horizon. It is not based around who has devices and who does not, but instead the new digital divide will be based around students who know how to effectively find and curate information and those who do not.

Maureen, I agree. Google does use AND as the default. In their defense, I believe the confusion is because not all searches do. Some still use OR. Check out this article about this person disappointed when a different search did not work until they used Google http://meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/22388/why-or-operator-by-default-in-search

I have a friend who teaches English courses at the college level and this is her biggest complaint. She says that the students simply do not know how to research. They don't know how to use databases or how to evaluate websites which seems so crazy to me. I'm not sure why these skills aren't being taught or integrated into every content area. Perhaps too much time is being spent preparing students for standardized testing.

The “Digital Native,” a Profitable Myth

The “Digital Native,” a Profitable Myth | Digital Natives and the Research Process | Scoop.it

Technology buzzwords, although annoying, often seem innocuous enough. They’re just catchy and trite enough to bleed into common usage, but just misleading and obfuscatory enough as to discourage deep analysis. Two of the most widespread buzzwords and phrases to escape the tech world and infiltrate our general lexicon are the couplet “digital native” and “digital immigrant.”

An academic article from The British Journal of Educational Technology last year, which critically examined the discourse around “digital natives,” found that “rather than being empirically and theoretically informed, the debate can be likened to an academic form of a ‘moral panic.’” The authors found that the commonly made claims are largely under-researched or just plain wrong when compared to the data.

The punishable perils of plagiarism - Melissa Huseman D’Annunzio | Digital Natives and the Research Process | Scoop.it

Fighting plagiarism is serious business. From brainchild-snatching to wholly quotables, plagiarists have plenty of wily ways to pass others' work off as their own -- and all of them are threats to original thinking. Melissa Huseman D’Annunzio imagines what would happen if a Department of Plagiarism Investigation were on the case.
