TL;DR: It is proposed that a more measured and disinterested approach is now required to investigate ‘digital natives’ and their implications for education and it is argued that rather than being empirical and theoretically informed, the debate can be likened to an academic form of a ‘moral panic’.
Abstract: The idea that a new generation of students is entering the education system has excited recent attention among educators and education commentators. Termed ‘digital natives’ or the ‘Net generation’, these young people are said to have been immersed in technology all their lives, imbuing them with sophisticated technical skills and learning preferences for which traditional education is unprepared. Grand claims are being made about the nature of this generational change and about the urgent necessity for educational reform in response. A sense of impending crisis pervades this debate. However, the actual situation is far from clear. In this paper, the authors draw on the fields of education and sociology to analyse the digital natives debate. The paper presents and questions the main claims made about digital natives and analyses the nature of the debate itself. We argue that rather than being empirically and theoretically informed, the debate can be likened to an academic form of a ‘moral panic’. We propose that a more measured and disinterested approach is now required to investigate ‘digital natives’ and their implications for education.

TL;DR: Mark J. W. Lee is the Chair of the New South Wales Chapter of the IEEE Education Society and serves as founding Editor-in-Chief of Impact:Journal of Applied Research in Workplace E-learning, in addition to being on the editorial boards of a number of international journals.
Abstract: Barney Dalgarno is a research fellow with the Centre for Research in Complex Systems (CRiCS), Charles Sturt University, and an associate professor with the School of Education at the same university. His research interests lie in desktop virtual reality learning environments, as well as constructivist computerassisted learning theories, techniques and tools. Dalgarno’s PhD work examined the characteristics of 3-D environments and their potential contributions to spatial learning, and he is now studying the application of brain imaging though Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) to interactive multimedia research. Mark J. W. Lee is an adjunct senior lecturer with the School of Education, Charles Sturt University. Previously, he worked in a variety of teaching, instructional design, and managerial roles within the private vocational education and higher education sectors. He has published approximately 50 refereed book chapters, journal articles, and conference papers in the areas of educational technology, e-learning, and innovative pedagogy in tertiary education. Lee is the Chair of the New South Wales Chapter of the IEEE Education Society and serves as founding Editor-in-Chief of Impact:Journal of Applied Research in Workplace E-learning, in addition to being on the editorial boards of a number of international journals.

TL;DR: The results indicate that performance expectancy, effort expectancy, social influence, perceived playfulness, and self-management of learning were all significant determinants of behavioural intention to use m-learning.
Abstract: With the proliferation of mobile computing technology, mobile learning (m-learning) will play a vital role in the rapidly growing electronic learning market. M-learning is the delivery of learning to students anytime and anywhere through the use of wireless Internet and mobile devices. However, acceptance of m-learning by individuals is critical to the successful implementation of m-learning systems.Thus, there is a need to research the factors that affect user intention to use m-learning. Based on the unified theory of acceptance and use of technology (UTAUT), which integrates elements across eight models of information technology use, this study was to investigate the determinants of m-learning acceptance and to discover if there exist either age or gender differences in the acceptance of m-learning, or both. Data collected from 330 respondents inTaiwan were tested against the research model using the structural equation modelling approach. The results indicate that performance expectancy, effort expectancy, social influence, perceived playfulness, and self-management of learning were all significant determinants of behavioural intention to use m-learning. We also found that age differences moderate the effects of effort expectancy and social influence on m-learning use intention, and that gender differences moderate the effects of social influence and self-management of learning on m-learning use intention.These findings provide several important implications for m-learning acceptance, in terms of both research and practice.

TL;DR: The author develops the connection between constructivism and adult learning theory and proposes instructional guidelines using the constructivist approach in online learning for adults.
Abstract: Since online learning has a different setting from the conventional classroom, online educators need to use some special techniques and perceptions to lead to success. Moreover, adults have special needs and requirements as learners compared with children and adolescents, thus online educators should know how adults can learn best because of their special characteristics. Philosophical and methodological shifts also affect instruction. Many researchers have suggested that constructivism should be applied in distance education. Thus, this paper attempts to examine the impact of constructivism in online learning environments when focusing on adult learners. The author develops the connection between constructivism and adult learning theory. In addition, the paper proposes instructional guidelines using the constructivist approach in online learning for adults.
