Digital Natives = today's generation
Technology is real world. Our educational system must reflect the digital paradigm in order to maintain the integrity of its purpose which is to equip students with that which is necessary in order to successfully navigate their world.
Technology tools engage learners and encourage higher level thinking skills.
Technology must be specifically and purposefully tied to curricular goals.
Technology offers effective ways to individualize learning.
Ian Quillen suggests digitalized learning could help educators move toward instruction that is not dependent on age-based grades and offer the freedom for students to work at the individual and unique pace each learner deserves.
The time is now
for 21st Century Learning
