Here is you first online porfolio writing assignment.
Please download and read Prensky's "Digital Natives, Digital Immigrants, Part 1," Chris Betcher's "The Myth of the Digital Native" and Jamie McKenzie's "Digital Nativism and Digital Deprivation" from the "Course Documents" page on this website. (note: the McKenzie piece was not originally listed as an assigned reading on the course schedule).
Use the Critical Reading Template to develop an informed response to the three pieces and write a minimum of 300 words about the debate over the existence and status "digital natives." You are encouraged to bring material from earlier readings into your discussion as well.
Be sure to check off your portfolio under "categories" (to the right of the editor box) before you publish your response.
Many of you will chose to compose and save the reponse first in a word processing document (a smart thing to do). When it is complete you can simply copy your response and paste it into the text box.'
Bring a paper copy of your response with you to class by Wednesday. You may be asked to read from it.
Good luck. If anyone has any questions, please email me ASAP.
