The digital immigrant/digital native metaphor.

I first heard of this metaphor quite some time ago whilst listening to an educational podcast series titled “Teach with Tech” (2005 – 2007) episode 19 “Special Education and Universal Design for Learning.”

The special guest was a Teacher by the name of Dave Burgess speaking about incorporating technology into classrooms using Universal Design for Learning (UDL). Although the podcast is a little bit dated now the philosophies hold true even today.

If the name Dave Burgess rings a bell, he’s the gentleman behind the inspirational book and successful teaching program “Teach Like a Pirate.”

Dave runs a successful consulting business but also gives his time freely to motivate teachers to encourage creativity within their classrooms and students.
