Digital Natives teaching Digital Immigrants
How’s that for a metaphor of the disparity in practice between instructors and students today? Can’t take credit for it, it’s Marc Prensky in the journal “On the Horizon,” a copy of the article can be downloaded here. He wrote it in 2001, but I wonder… his thesis seems still true today. Do you agree? “Our students have changed radically. Today’s students are no longer the people our educational system was designed to teach.”
