Conceptual Age

Page history last edited by Mike King 10 years, 7 months ago

Pink has created a reference for us to consider right brain activities. Design, story, symphony, empathy, play and meaning. He says we should be more in tune with understanding Abraham Maslow’s hierarchy of needs (survival, security, belonging, ego, spirit). According to Pink, “Artists, inventors, designers, storytellers, caregivers, consolers, big-picture thinkers – will reap society’s richest rewards and share its greatest joys”. Pink claims that we are in a “conceptual age."

Introducing The Digital Native 

Digital Natives, Digital Immigrants

  • Our students have changed radically. Today’s students are no longer the people our educational system was designed to teach.
  • They represent the first generations to grow up with technology.
  • Today’s average college grads have spent less than 5,000 hours of their lives reading, but over 10,000 hours playing video games. Computer games, email, the Internet, cell phones and instant messaging are integral parts of their lives.
  • Digital Immigrant instructors, who speak an outdated language (that of the pre-digital age), are struggling to teach a population that speaks an entirely new language.
  • Digital Immigrant teachers assume that learners are the same as they have always been, and that the same methods that worked for the teachers when they were students will work for their students now.
  • But that assumption is no longer valid.
