The Generation Game: Exploding the myth behind the Google and Net Generations
Barry, W. 2009. The Generation Game: Exploding the myth behind the Google and Net Generations.
Prensky's paper "Digital Natives, Digital Immigrants" has influenced a number of Higher Education Institutions to tackle the growing concern that not only are students learning differently, they are also using a range of personalised digital tools to work, learn and play.
Popular and academic literature has been keen to extol the characteristics pertaining to the 'digital native' psyche, that include: speed of access to information; multi-tasking abilities; online socialisation; instant gratification and being more visually literate/aware.
If these characteristics are true, then the repercussions on how schools, colleges and Universities are going to teach this new generation of learner could well be profound, if not problematical.
