More than just a tool for information transfer, the Internet has become a conduit for a globalized workforce. However, as the Internet has become integrated into daily business life, a digital divide has emerged. Some derive the benefits of Internet access, but many others do not.
Topic 2: Digital Natives Digital Immigrants
This week you read Digital Natives, Digital Immigrants by Mark Prensky.
According to Prensky, today’s students are no longer the people our educational system was designed to teach. Prensky also pointed out that there needs to be a switch in the way in which educators teach because students are losing out due to the “old fashioned” methods of teaching which are still being used today.
Do you agree that educators have to keep abreast of the technological changes and adjust the curriculum accordingly? (justify and support your answer).
