PBS Teachers and Classroom 2.0 Present a Live Webinar Featuring John Palfrey
Join PBS Teachers and Classroom 2.0 Thursday, Feb. 26 at 8 p.m. EST for “Teaching and Learning with Digital Natives,” with our speaker, John Palfrey, director of the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University and author of Born Digital: Understanding the First Generation of Digital Native.
In this discussion, you will learn about “digital natives”, whom Palfrey describes as a “select” population born after 1980 that processes and sees the world very differently than generations prior. The characteristics of these students demand a new paradigm for engaging learners. The discussion will also focus on how educators can become familiar with the technologies of digital natives and use these technologies to compliment their pedagogy.
Tip:Arrive early so you can set up your computer. You can also tour the Elluminate Live! support pages to orient yourself and test your computer ahead of time. We will be online at 7:00 p.m. EST to help you if you have questions.
Note: You will need to install the latest version of the Adobe Flash player to view video for this presentation.
