Why the need for an integrative model of academic and career advising and why now?
Why do students go to college?
2012 freshman norms report
Economics over Intellectualism
Historical Evolution: Academic Advising
Differences: Natives VS Immigrants
Processing Information
Sense of Identity
Legacy versus Future Learning
Processing Information
Digital Natives retrieve information and communicate with their peers very quickly (Prensky 2001)
Digital immigrants often take the longer route, be it verifying with their peers what they communicated technologically via Facebook or texting with face-to-face confirmation
Digital Immigrants one step at a time, is often the norm through a linear and logical progression
Digital Immigrants one step at a time, is often the norm through a linear and logical progression
Sense of Identity
Digital Natives use technology as an extension of their bodies
Digital Immigrants use technology to reach someone or to set up a face-to-face meeting
Legacy VS Future Learning
Legacy content includes reading, writing, arithmetic, logical thinking, understanding the writings and ideas of the past- all of your traditional curriculum (Prensky 2001)
Future content is surprisingly not just digital and technological, while it includes software, robotics, nanotechnology etc., it also includes the ethics, politics, sociology, languages and other things that go with them (Prensky 2001)
What the future holds?
The probable evolution of digital immigrants into Homo sapiens digital is what the future beholds, they will differ from the digital immigrants since they will accept digital enhancement as an integral fact of human existence, thus leading to digital wisdom (Prensky 2009)
The gap between Digital Immigrants and Digital Natives will be reduced by Digital enhancement. In fact, at our own pace we are all moving, by fits and starts towards it….

By 1930, most colleges had formal faculty advising programs.
The NACADA established in 1979.
Academic Advising today is recognized as a critical service.
Need for vocational guidance was established after Civil War.
Placement services were offered for an increasingly urban and industrial society in the first stage of career counseling development.
