Teaching¬†Digital Natives presents teachers with an intuitive yet highly innovative and research-based partnership model designed to promote student learning through the use of technology. Emphasizing more on how students learn relevant skills as they use technology to 'úget things done'Ě and less on the mastery of technology for technology's sake, Marc Prensky calls for a division of labor and cooperation between students, teachers, and administrators so that each group can take on the roles for which they are best suited. Each chapter focuses on how to empower students to learn a cluster of 21 st century skills while providing a variety of content-area and grade-level examples. The book illustrates: How digitally literate students can specialize in content finding, analysis, and presentation via multiple media How teachers can specialize in providing questions, context, quality, rigor, and individualized attention to students How¬†administrators can support, organize and facilitate the process while meeting curriculum and standards requirements

Customer Reviews

Very good March 16, 2011
The ideas presented in this textbook help to formalize that understanding and provide insight for novice teachers or those who have not embraced partnering. I purchased this textbook as a resource for my classroom after referring to it over and over and over in a research paper for my grad class. The clear and concise treatment of topics will give you a quick and easy way to take this powerful information right into the classroom and put it to use.
