ECAR and Higher Education Technology

There is an interesting article geared toward higher education at the "Inside Higher Ed" site that discusses the ways in which digitally "native" students are embracing and changing the ways in which technology is used in a pedagogical setting. This report comes after last week's release of a study by ECAR.

Chris Dede and others are mentioned in the Inside Higher Ed article. Technologies such as Google Docs, social networking sites such as Facebook, and wikis are all explored as well.

Interestingly, digitally native students value face-to-face interaction and do not believe that digital tools will necessarily provide a solution in all educational settings and experiences.
