In addition to Marc Prensky's "Digital Natives" term, I have also found some remarks by John Seely Brown very helpful in describing today's youth. He writes that today's students prefer to learn while they "link" and "lurk" - which I'm sure describes how Ron Smith's students figured the video pods. I am working on a doctorate in instructional design for online learning, and have added a third term to Seely's link and lurk descriptions. Today's students have a preference for learning situations that allow them to link, lurk, and lunge. They learn by finding those who know how to do what they want to do, they hang out or "lurk" around them, and then lunge in and try new things on their own. I am looking for ways to statistically document these attributes and learning preferences. Any ideas?

What a great story! How sad it is that we educators have to create funding and grants for this kind of technology work. How wonderful that you were able to create resources for the students so that they could use multimedia in new and wonderful ways.

The phrase "digital natives" never ceases to amaze me. Our students truly do know so much more about the world of the computer and the Internet than we do. Recently I've come to compare the computer in today's classroom to the pen in the classroom of the Twentieth Century. It is absolutely essential to high quality education. I've done some writing about this on my own blog Feel free to take a look.

Dave- The students were seniors in high school. I chose them because they had made a movie, using, in order, a digital video camera, final cut pro, itunes. What I wanted was to see if students could use the iPods as a portable portfolio. The movie they made was a 5-part novella, in Spanish, about high school boys.

What were the age of the students who used the ipods? How did you decide which students to give them too? What movies were they supposed to "get onto the ipod?" Thanks.
