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.
