Innovate (www.innovateonline.info) is published bimonthly as a public
service by the Fischler School of Education and Human Services at Nova
Southeastern University and is sponsored, in part, by Microsoft. 

The February/March issue opens with Marc Prensky revisiting--and
revising--the digital native/digital immigrant dichotomy he added to
our lexicon in 2001. Arguing that the native/immigrant paradigm will
become less meaningful when everyone will have grown up in the era of
digital technology, Prensky introduces the notion of digital wisdom.
Digital wisdom, as Prensky defines it, comprises both wisdom in the
prudent use of technology and the wisdom we gain from sophisticated
technologies that enhance human cognition. (See

Patrick McGrail and Ewa McGrail offer practical advice for students
and educators attempting to comply with copyright law as they use Web
2.0 technology. They argue that copyright will continue to limit the
integration of many technologies in education until the law is
reshaped to reflect the reality of a digital culture. (See
http://www.innovateonline.info/index.php?view=article&id=630&action=article)

Our next two articles describe attempts to bring technology into the
classroom. Neelu Sinha, Laila Khreisat, and Kiron Sharma's pilot study
found that the interaction enabled by the tablet PCs and accompanying
tools enabled active learning for students in face-to-face computer
science courses. These technologies facilitated the creation of a
nonthreatening, flexible, and challenging learning environment with a
focus on practical applications. (See
http://www.innovateonline.info/index.php?view=article&id=622&action=article)

Next, Annick Janson and Robin Janson describe an effort to introduce
digital learning objects into elementary-school science classes in New
Zealand. While their study illustrated that digital tools can enhance
learning, it also revealed that the key to the acceptance of such
technologies is leadership. (See
http://www.innovateonline.info/index.php?view=article&id=581 you are
invited to participate. (See
http://www.innovateonline.info/index.php?view=article&id=710&action=article)

In Innovate-Ideagora, Alan McCord and Denise Easton describe webcast
interviews with Ed Gehringer about Expertiza, an online peer-review
tool, and with Tim DiScipio whose organization, ePals, connects
students across cultural and national boundaries. They also describe
new discussions around such topics as the challenges of integrating
technology into education in countries where the infrastructure is
unreliable or absent, the effect that new media is having on the very
idea of "school," and the ongoing discussion of educator resistance to
technology-enhanced active learning strategies. (See
http://www.innovateonline.info/index.php?view=article&id=709&action=article)

In the From Our Sponsor section, Daniel W. Rasmus offers a follow-up
to his June/July 2008 article "Scenario Planning and the Future of
Education" by describing what education looks like in the four
scenarios that emerged from Microsoft's scenario planning process.
Rasmus suggests that educators and policy makers can use these
scenarios to consider how large and small choices work toward or
against a particular future. Set against a vision of the future we
want, this imaginative thinking process can help guide policy
decisions large and small. (See
http://www.innovateonline.info/index.php?view=article&id=656&action=synopsis)

As noted earlier, Microsoft is our sponsor. Please consider
submitting a manuscript describing how you use Microsoft technology to
enhance the educational experience. Make sure that the manuscript
conforms to the publication guidelines described in the "Contribute"
link on Innovate's navigation bar. The senior authors of the top three
papers published on Microsoft's Web site at
http://www.microsoft.com/education/highered/technology.aspx prior to
June 2009 will be invited to present their papers at the Microsoft
Global Exchange summit in July 2009 (with expenses covered by
Microsoft).

We hope that you enjoy this issue of Innovate. Use the discussion
board within each article to raise questions or provide additional
commentary. Your comments will be sent to authors for their response,
which will then become part of the record for their article. Don't
forget to register for this issue's live author webcasts hosted by our
partner, ULiveandLearn, at the Innovate-Live portal at
http://www.uliveandlearn.com/PortalInnovate/index.cfm). Also, please
forward this announcement to appropriate mailing lists and to
colleagues who want to use IT tools to advance their work. Finally,
ask your organizational librarian to link to Innovate in their
resource section for open-access e-journals.

Thanks!

Jim
