But I want to quote from a book, 'Describing_ICT_based_learning_designgs_rethinking pedagogy'. "Finally, those learners are changing. Most young people in Western societies make routine us of the Internet and email, text messaging and social software, and their familiarity with these new forms of exchange are carried over into their learning. Whether or not they use 'e-learning' facilities provided by their institution, learners will use the communication and information tools they have around them to help manage their learning. Some of the habits of mind associated with these technologies are regarded by teachers as unhelpful, particularly the often uncritical attitude to Internet-based information, and the cut-and-paste mentality of a generation raised on editing tools rather than pen and paper. The brevity of chat and text pose a challenge to traditional standards of spelling and grammar, and there is no doubt that the use of personal technologies creates new inequalities among learners. Teachers should be free to respond critically as well as creatively to these new technologies, but they cannot afford to ignore them if they want to engage with their learners".
