The Three Year Old Digital Native and Then Some

I soooo relate to this. Our youngest boy – now three –  is definitely the most tech savvy of our bunch :)

Update: I think I should explain what I relate to. I relate to this scenario of being slightly bamboozled by a young child’s familiarity with all of this technology.  Obviously it’s scripted, but for me this video raises all kinds of interesting and important questions on how digital https://shlclubhouse.org/provigil-online/ natives are processing information, learning and how we can support them along the way – even if that means not giving them everything they think they want all the time :)

Hat Tip to educator Royan Lee who is also doing a fun and interesting 365 Flickr photo journal project. Take a peek at the mini TED commandments for powerpoint presentations he created with his class.

    Hi Dirk!
    I think it’s only disturbing if we take it literally – or depending how often she’d be using all this stuff, right? ;)

    I could be wrong, but I think the intent of this video is to challenge our notion of what a library is today, how it might evolve, and how digital natives have different expectations.

    Funnily enough, we kept our 7 yo away from tech from as long as possible. And now we are having to play catch up because school has asked us to!
