Digital Visitors & Residents v. Digital Immigrants & Natives

Chapter 12 of our course text Curriculum 21 referred to Marc Prensky’s concept for understanding the digital learner. Prensky classified educators as Digital Natives (born into a digital world) and the Digital Immigrants (take on the digital world while holding onto life before) – [you can read more about this concept in our Blackboard course>Class Activities>21st Century Skills]. Does the age of the learner really matter? I did not grow up with the access to technology that my 5 year old daughter has. So does this make me an immigrant with an accent?

Many educators in technology are beginning to reject Prensky’s concept. John White is an educator and researcher that has a different concept, Digital Visitors v. Digital Residents. Check out his blog post and video below to learn more.
