The Networked Student video
represents a project I'm doing with my high school students. It's going pretty well, but these kids are definitely starting from scratch. They have had a very traditional education with a lot of lecture and primarily passive learning. Contrary to popular notion, "digital native" does not mean innate ability to properly use all things digital, nor does it mean that students are necessarily ready to learn in a digital environment. I would love your feedback on the following.
Assuming your student have access to computers, could this work in your classroom?
What obstacles would you face?
Do you think students are ready to learn in this environment?
At what age could children begin to learn in this format?
