The Digital Generation Intro

Marc Prensky, in his books on learning from games, introduces the idea of Digital Natives versus Digital Immigrants.  He compares the nature of those who were born pre-Google to those born since in an effort to help us understand the vast differences between how each thinks, communicates, learns, and engages in this world.

In future blogs, I will go into greater detail about this idea, but this book is worth a read for EVERY parent of children under 16.
