These 2 articles (article 1 and article 2) were written by Marc Prensky in 2001 but still completely relevant 10 years later.

As a digital immigrant myself, I often reflect on my teaching approach. I am fully aware of the need to teach in a manner that make sense to and comfortable for the digital natives. However up till now, no one (from the policy makers to the frontline line workers, i.e., teachers) has figured out a consistent way to do that. Our syllabuses are still very 20th century but teachers are left to figure out how to incorporate 21st century learning for the digital natives.
