Our students are digital learners and thinkers. Teachers should realize this and accommodate and update. There are plentiful resources out there so there should be no excuses. You can blog, glog, wiki, Facebook, use an I pad/IPod, ect. After reading the article, it really opened my eyes to how our children are learning. It really is a serious issue in our schools. I think that if we can incorporate technology into our classrooms as much as possible, then we would produce higher achievement. The key idea here is to engage. If we engage, then we learn. These readings and videos just encouraged me more to keep on incorporating digital activities into my lessons. As for me, I think I am a bit of both the digital immigrant and the digital native. If I had to choose which it would probably be the native though. I know a bit about technology, but not near as much as my 10 year old brother. These youngsters are very tech savvy. Most of them have personal computers, cell phones, or video games. When I was growing up I didn't have any! So in my theory of digitalness, if we can't beat them, join them. Technology can be fun if you let it be. Teachers be creative and embrace this new digital age. The only thing in life that is consistent is change itself.
