Visitors & Residents: The Video
Oct 21, 2011
Commentary by Stephen Downes
A resource I'm using in my talk tomorrow is this page from David S. White on the 'visitors and residents' metaphor he and Alison Le Cornu used in response to Prensky's widely popular but oft-refuted model of the digital native and digital immigrant. The video is supported by a Prexi presentation outlining the concept. While the concept is used to describe a person's familiarity and engagement with the internet, I use it more broadly to talk about their engagement with any subject matter.
