You Digital, Me Immigrant

Statistics speak volumes even years after Prensky's classic Digital Natives, Digital Immigrants. However hard we may be trying to drop the 'accent', his article still reverberates across educational circles. In an exclusive interview for elearningpost he asserts that 'a big part of our current education problems stem directly from the fact that the Digital Immigrants -who comprise most of our teachers and trainers- are not very fluent in the language the Digital Natives speak.' Digital Land still needs to be explored and conquered. The Natives won't pick up immigrant dialect.
