digital natives/digital immigrants

12/11/2010

written by marc prensky, these papers discuss the very different brains that people have who are brought up in the digital age in comparison to those who have lived through it + had to learn it post-childhood.

the first paper is highly interesting + very to the point, helping you to understand the second.
it’s only short + can be downloaded as a pdf HERE.

the second paper i’m only halfway through + am finding so interesting that rather ironically i have to put it up on here. it all rings so true + makes such good points, it is a bit longer, about six pages in total, but well worth the read . it can be downloaded as a pdf HERE.
