BYOD is dead – long live CYOD! | learning by using iPads | Scoop.it
Few people would argue the benefits of BYOD. When employees are allowed to bring their own computers and smart devices to work, it saves their employers having to buy and maintain the devices and infrastructure needed to support them, creating happy, productive employees who use the technology they know and love. And yet, according to a study by CompTIA, companies are ditching BYOD as their primary device acquisition model. In 2015, 53% of companies surveyed said they weren’t using BYOD – quite

Revisiting Digital Natives, Digital Immigrants

Revisiting Digital Natives, Digital Immigrants | learning by using iPads | 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
Viljenka Savli (http://www2.arnes.si/~sopvsavl/)'s insight:

I like this article as it points out one of the most importnt sues of both kind of natives

"We are beginning to see the first Digital Natives return to our schools as teachers and while they bring with them an experience of schooling arguably tainted by the beliefs of Digital Immigrants we could expect to see a difference in approach....Yes, they assume access to the internet, they are aware of certain digital tool sets but they are also unaware of many of the skills and tools considered important for success in a digital age. Coding skills remain rare for example and strategies for the use of technology for critical thinking and innovation are as wide spread in this group as amongst their older colleagues. Clearly there is much room for ongoing learning and the construction of a pedagogy with technology at its core is yet to become a natural part of teacher training programmes." 

 

We are beginning to see the first Digital Natives return to our schools as teachers and while they bring with them an experience of schooling arguably tainted by the beliefs of Digital Immigrants we could expect to see a difference in approach. As with all individuals the differences between new graduates has more to do with their individuality than with their membership of a particular group or more importantly their birthday. Yes, they assume access to the internet, they are aware of certain digital tool sets but they are also unaware of many of the skills and tools considered important for success in a digital age. Coding skills remain rare for example and strategies for the use of technology for critical thinking and innovation are as wide spread in this group as amongst their older colleagues. Clearly their is much room for ongoing learning and the construction of a pedagogy with technology at its core is yet to become a natural part of teacher training programmes.

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"
