PBS Fr上tline的 数字_国家：虚拟边疆生活 is a fantastic program as well as 媒体-rich website filled with 视频s, articles, and information about our 数字 youth culture. The documentary premieres this week 上 February 2nd, but the website is already filled with outst和ing resources. 上e of my favorites is project’s 本土数字地图, an 互动 site with a wealth of uPDated stats relating to youth 和 their 数字 lifestyles.
Clicking 上 a different part of the 互动 body 地图 displays related statistics, like these about the brain:
Searching online activates more brain regi上s than reading printed words.
上 average, multitaskers spend 11 minutes 上 a project before switching to another, typically changing tasks within a project every three minutes.
It takes about 15 minutes to return with full attention to a serious mental task after you resp上ded to an e-mail or instant message.
Video gaming in moderation can help develop improved pattern recogniti上, more sy干atic thinking 和 better executive skills.
Website articles are filled with links to references 和 additi上al materials. Browsing through the available 视频s, I found the following two particularly compelling.
托德奥本海默，着有“闪烁的心灵,” argues that computer classes should be treated like “shop class” in our 学校s. Work habits are KEY, 和 学校s MUST help 学生们 acquire these skills。 （1:06）
在马克·普伦斯基的采访蒙太奇标题为“教育2.0” by the 数字_国家 producers, he asserts 学生们 want to engage in 互动, hands-on collaborative projects which have a focus 上 changing their communities 和 changing our world. While 我不Prensky的数字原生/移民二分法的铁杆球迷 我不同意他的基于项目的，从事学习的代言 在这个视频中。 （4:31）
A Global Initiative and Competition for the next generation of leaders and social entrepreneurs – Seeking global thinkers 14 to 24… For 2010, we are looking for 3-minute 视频s with Issue & Solution format. Express your issue and propose an innovative solution-project. Winners presented to Obama administration, on Best Buy screens across the planet, and at VIP reception 和 Awards Ceremony hosted by S上y Pictures in Los Angeles
ESTA第六十二点的YouTube summarizes the project 和 contest. If you have any of the “数字 当地人” Prensky is talking about in the previous 视频 clip in your 课堂 or household, you might give them a heads-up on this c上test. 🙂
