Wow! Just creating this page and trying to make this post has been a stiff cold slap in the chops for me! I am most certainly a digital immigrant with only one foot in the water! I can remember being in high school and experiencing my first introduction to the World Wide Web. My parents missed the technology train and so my family didn’t and still doesn’t have a computer. While I have had to become more progressive there are still many things that totally overwhelm my abilities. As a teacher with students of the digital native population, I can very much feel their advanced skill with technology. Their lives are composed of a digital web of communication and activity for the better part of 24 hours a pop. This bombardment creates a knowledge hungry monster with an attention span as long as your pinkie finger. It is clear that the mold of education I was created in no longer can contain or support the students of today. As educators we must overcome the hazards and strife of immigration and master the languages of the natives we educate. I believe the only way is to make a habit of seeking out self educating experiences until a functional/beneficial level of fluency is reached.
