I watched the recent MOOC session with Doug Belshaw. It wasn't a major enlightenment but what interesting with regards to this post was the discussion of Prensky's 'digital natives' and its damage. It has created such an elitist entitled attitude about technology skills but also a myth that kids have some innate method of acquiring skills without learning experiences. People only know what they do. Humans need to practice anything if they wish to learn.
