Are today’s students fundamentally different than those of 5, 10 or 15 years ago? How will the classroom you teach in be different in 20 years? Since I assume you can predict the future as well as I, this assignment will help us explore the present and future of education. Additionally it will be our first introduction to you in this class.

Some background…
A digital native is a person who has grown up with digital technology such as computers, the Internet, mobile phones and MP3. A digital immigrant is an individual who grew up without digital technology and adopted it later. A digital native might refer to their new "camera"; a digital immigrant might refer to their new "digital camera".

Your assignment…

  1. Individually read: Prensky, M. (2001). " Digital Natives, Digital Immigrants ." On the Horizon 9(5)
  2. Read your group’s article .
  3. As a group, prepare a 7-10 minute presentation for the class that…
    • Introduces your group members

Your group will be randomly assigned to present at the beginning of class on either week 2, 3, or 4.
