ICT IN THE CLASSROOM


DIGITAL NATIVES

Marc Prensky´s thoughts must be considered too. ‘Teachers of 21st century are in charge of preparing children for an uncertained future’.  It is impossible to know what is going to happen in the future but we can have an idea if we think about how people live in the 21st century. During the last fifteen years people have became digital natives and they are living a different type of life if we compare it to the adult’s childhood. Our opinion about videogames usually has a bad connotation and this is because we do not really like them, play with them and because the publicity the games have received is usually not positive. Videogames have a challenge in terms of use. The balance between use and abuse is the real fight, because it is thought that the benefits are low. From my experience I am able to say that when I give new technology assignments not only the majority of students do them, many do them several times, as compared to when I assign homework they have to do in the notebook, and there are pupils who will not complete the work.
