The Digital Native

A session at Update 2011

The current model of teaching students using a standardised system with a single suite of software on a desktop computer is no longer justifiable. The "digital native" has access to an array of technology on various platforms, which are rarely allowed within school gates despite their relevancy and educational potential.

Network lock-downs and zealous firewalls in schools also widen the chasm between the classroom and reality. Is this condemning a generation to be purely consumers of technology rather than creators?
