Taking a Journey with Today's Digital Kids: An Interview with Deneen Frazier Bowen
Morrison, James L.; Bowen, Deneen Frazier
Innovate: Journal of Online Education, v2 n2 Dec 2005-Jan 2006
Editor-in-chief James Morrison sat down with Deneen Frazier Bowen at the 2005 National Educational Computing Conference to discuss her unique presentation "The Natives are Restless," a series of dramatic sketches dealing with the utilization of technology in educational settings. Bowen's sketches examined students' difficulties in relating school to real life as well as teachers' insecurities regarding incorporating technology into their classrooms. Bowen argues that the key to addressing the generation gap illustrated in these stories--a gap caused by students' greater comfort with technology in general--is to allow students a greater voice in their education to help shape the ways that technology works in their schools and in their real lives.
