Digital Natives vs Digital Immigrants

G. Siemens writes in his Elearnspace about the New Media Literacy: digital natives and digital immigrants! His opinions about this tendency are based on Henry Jenkins. Here the needs for policy and pedagogical interventions:

1. The Participation Gap -- the unequal access of youths to the opportunities, experiences, skills, and knowledge which will prepare them for full participation in the world of tomorrow.

2. The Transparency Problem -- The challenges young people face in learning to see clearly the ways that media shapes our perceptions of the world.

3. The Ethics Challenge -- The breakdown of traditional forms of professional training and socialization which might prepare young people for their increasingly public roles as media makers and community participants.

Two other interesting articles for those in the Education field and also written by Siemens are: Science Education and Mobile Learning.
