Digital Natives

Our discussion about digital natives and differences in how generations use technology made me think of this infographic I saw on the weekend.

  2. This was a great infographic comparing how much technology shapes the lives of our students. What I admire most about our kids is their ability to try new things and explore on their own. I remember being much more afraid to do this because I didn’t want to make mistakes. Students are more willing to try out new apps and explore the internet to find answers than I would have been at their age. I am starting to feel more like a digital native …. but I think I am still miles behind my students.

  3. Jen, this visual showing the differences between the generations is a great reminder from whence we have come. I was led here by Carmel’s post on Infographics and was really impressed to see it all laid out so clearly.

I’m inspired by visuals.. with quick information, so thanks for the source. Eric 🙂

  5. Thanks for posting this infographic, it will be a very useful starting point for provoking conversation with students about their changing world. As an English teacher, I was particularly interested in the statistics linked to reading. Part of me is saddened by the reading for pleasure statistics for teenagers, especially since this skill is linked to success in other areas of the curriculum as is mentioned in the Eteach post Reading for Pleasure Means Better Maths . However, perhaps I am just being old fashioned about the value of reading traditional prose; by reading this list of 21st Century Literacies we can perhaps infer that engaging with multiple formats is now a necessary part of becoming literate in the 21st century.
