PBS Teachers and Classroom 2.0 is delighted to have John Palfrey, director of the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University and author of Born Digital: Understanding the First Generation of Digital Natives, as our guest for "Teaching and Learning with Digital Natives", the next webinar in the PBS Teachers LIVE! series to be held Feb. 26 at 8 p.m.
In this upcoming webinar, participants will learn about "digital natives", whom Palfrey describes as a "select" population born after 1980 that processes and sees the world very differently than generations prior. The characteristics of these students demand a new paradigm for engaging learners. The discussion will also focus on how educators can become familiar with the technologies of digital natives and use these technologies to compliment their pedagogy.
