Revisiting Digital Natives, Digital Immigrants

Revisiting Digital Natives, Digital Immigrants | Tools for Teachers & Learners | 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.

Nik Peachey's insight:

A reflection on the digital natives vs digital immigrants debate.

more...
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"

Angela C. Dowd's curator insight, October 24, 2015 12:06 PM

Well written and relevant...instructional designers often talk about this. Thanks Nik!
