Do we need to teach students about technology since they are digital natives?
Check out the discussion on iste.org.
I have to say I agree with the gist of most of the comments, and love this quote:
“Calling students ‘digital natives’ is an excuse for not actually teaching them about technology.”
Just because a child has grown up around these tools doesn’t mean they always know how to use them.
From watching my kids and their friends, it is obvious that kids have very different levels of fluency with technology, just like us “digital immigrants.”
