Digital Immigrants

As educators we have come to technology as "digital immigrants" compared to the generation who have grown up with technology as a part of all areas of their life. Teachers will need to come to grips with the nature of this reality, even if we find it difficult, and take steps to look at how we can practically integrate the new technologies into our normal teaching routines.

As educators we are constantly working to deal with new initiatives that come down the pipeline. These are ever-changing, but they are always coming. Implementation of types of new technology is often one of these initiatives, and it is crucial that educators work to make these meaningful and worth the effort of putting into practice. This should only be done when it has been demonstrated that these make a difference with regard to student learning.
