Digital Learners: How Are They Expanding the Horizon of Learning?
Jackson, Sherion H.; Crawford, Debi
International Journal of Educational Leadership Preparation, v3 n2 Jul-Sep 2008
Young learners today are not growing up at the foot of the family radio or spending a good portion of their childhood glued to the television while Sesame Street and Mr. Rogers disseminate information in a constant stream as did previous generations. Rather, this generation of young learners continues to spend many out-of-school hours in a digital world composed of cell phones, MP3 players, computers, and video gaming. This very simple beginning is changing the horizon of learning. The primary purpose of this article is to examine the components of digital learning and the impact these components bring to the relationship of learners to their learning experience. Further, instructional and curricular modifications are discussed addressing the trend of expanded learning, evaluation of that learning, and the possible impact on the educational system, students, educators, and trainers across the nation and throughout the world.
