Digital Natives – OII SDP notes

September 2, 2007 at 11:50 pm 1 comment

Here comes my OII SDP notes again.

The very first leture was on digital natives: how do we understand the generation that was born and raised after ICTs become an integral part of our lives. Today’s tech-savvy youth may pose an intimidating object for us to understand. They are consumers as well as creators. The lecture asked questions rather than providing any conclusive answers.

The syllabus does a nice job to summarzie those questions:

With over a million young people “born digital,” now is the time to examine the emerging trends of how these digital natives construct identity, learn, create, and socialize in an ever-changing “always on” landscape. How do we give digital natives the tools (in terms of know-how, technology, social norms, or other means) to navigate safely in the emerging digital social space? How can copyright holders work with digital creators to understand their needs and practices in a way that doesn’t stifle their creativity? As a global society, can we come to understand what’s happening with a generation online, to embrace a digital present, and to shape, in constructive ways, a more digital future?
