In the field of education and learning
A big discontinuity has taken place:Singularity: the arrival and rapid dissemination of digital technology in the last decades of the 20th century.
Todays average college grads have spent less than 5,000 hs of their lives reading but over 10,000hours playing videogames.
Brain structure and thinking patterns
Todays students think and process information differently from their teachers.
Our students brains have physically changed and are different from ours as a result of how they grew up. Digital NativesWHO ARE THEY?Theyre our students today.
WHAT DO THEY DO?use the digital language of computers, video games and the Internet. are used to receiving information really fast.like to parallel process and multi-task. prefer their graphics before their text rather than the opposite. prefer random access (like hypertext). They function best when networked.
Digital ImmigrantsWHO ARE THEY? People who were not born into the digital world They have become fascinated by and adopted many or most aspects of the new technology.They always retain, to some degree, their "accent," that is, their foot in the past.
