Instructional Design. Visitors and Residents: A new typology for online engagement. This article proposes a continuum of ‘Visitors’ and ‘Residents’ as a replacement for Prensky’s much‐criticised Digital Natives and Digital Immigrants.

Visitors and Residents: A new typology for online engagement

Challenging the basic premises upon which Prensky constructed his typology, Visitors and Residents fulfil a similar purpose in mapping individuals’ engagement with the Web. We argue that the metaphors of ‘place’ and ‘tool’ most appropriately represent the use of technology in contemporary society, especially given the advent of social media. The Visitors and Residents continuum accounts for people behaving in different ways when using technology, depending on their motivation and context, without categorising them according to age or background. A wider and more accurate representation of online behaviour is therefore established. ContentsI. A Great Cities Initiative of the University of Illinois at Chicago University Library.

How We Process Our brains are built to quickly take in and process visual information. This is why rich content is an integral part of any learning solution. How We Learn This is why Instructional Design must plan for and incorporate visual from the start. How Brain Science is Driving the Evolution of Corporate Learning. A few weeks ago, we gave you a sneak peak into one of the responses we planned to share at our ATD Conference panel discussion on May 17, entitled Brain Science and the Evolution of Corporate Learning.

(And this list is frustratingly incomplete–they’re just the sites on my radar that I’ve been reading since I entered education.) A bit more “fringe” are sites like TeachThought, Jackie Gerstein’s UserGeneratedEducation, the Connected Learning Alliance and, MindShift, and so many more–“fringe” due to their thinking that seems as interested in understanding what’s possible in a modern learning environment as they are what is.

You could even call this kind of content less immediately practical when you’re just Googling for a lesson idea for tomorrow, but there’s room for everyone in a digital and infinite world. 1.
