Michael, M. (2009). What makes today's kids really sit up and fires their neural fibres? Technology. So how can teachers help "curiosity" to kill the cat? Catholic Education Office WA Curriculum Conference.

Abstract

Many of today’s kids are ‘digital natives’ having been born into a technological world, whilst many teachers feel threatened by the accelerating changes occurring in this technology. However, being a digital native does not ensure that one can use it effectively and with discernment. Teachers who use problem-based approaches to teaching and learning have the capacity to provide kids with opportunities to use technology critically and effectively to explore real world issues and situations. The world is changing rapidly and teachers can use exemplary teaching practice to embed ICTs into learning programs that prepare kids for the challenges of the modern world
