Dr. Laura Sheneman's curator insight, September 11, 2013 10:04 AM

Interesting ideas here: Digital Poverty and Digital Outcasts


Shah added: "[Prensky's] observations may describe a generation gap that the U.S. faced, but if you transplant the same definition to other parts of the world, natives are sometimes indistinguishable from immigrants."

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 11, 2013 12:00 PM

The term digital native is an oversimplication and is not overly accurate. Research in Australia and England are showing power users in undergrad programs make up about 14% of the students. What about the rest? One thing about Prensky's work is he does acknowledge that technology has to fit with school and learning in an integrated manner.

 

As I read the article, I realized this concerns about the pace of technology have been with us for some time, perhaps since time began. Hannah Arendt argued the pace of technology had outpaced our ability to speak about it coherently in the 1950's.

Añadir contexto significa relacionar la realidad con las experiencias de aprendizaje de nuestrx alumnx y sus conocimientos previos. Significa poner ese andamiaje que ayuda a crear productos únicos y compartidos con su entorno; bien sea porque ayuda a pensar con claridad y rigor, bien porque ayuda a crear un producto único y original, bien`porque ayuda a estructurar la lengua asociada a cualquier proceso.
