Building bridges for the future through collaborative projects
I attended a great PM and APM meeting last night so I would like to share some of the things we discussed. It would be very beneficial to start a discussion on the wiki for each week so that we can keep in contact with our team mates about the edits we made for the week. This way people can comment and give you advice on how to improve your edits or even praise you for your effort! Also, we are getting to the video stage and the people who put more effort in and…Continue

At first, when Don Tapscott was telling us we are the dumbest generation, I was a bit confused because I had heard about his ideas before. I have heard critiques about our generation. I had never thought until this video mentioned it that the critics didn't have the data to back what they were saying. I do not "steal" and my parents do not spoon feed me. I agree that we are a powerful force for change, because we are all so connected.

After reading Don Tapscott's eight NetGenEd norms i have concluded that I almost completely agree with what he had to say. Our generation is very reliant on the internet, and the internet does make up a big part of who we are and how we work in our daily lives. The statement Don Tapscott said that i agree most with is that this generation is more creative due to the internet. The internet, like Don Tapscott said, has made us scrutinize, collaborate, and innovate. These characteristics have…Continue

I agree with Tapscott. He is right about how "critics" are wrong in calling us the stupid generation, when really we are the "smart" generation. Those critics are just afraid of change and innovation. Since the start of time, there has always been opposition, or critics who try to stand in the way of advancement, because they are afraid that by advancing, we are also regressing. In fact, Tapscott should be totally acknowledged, because he conducted $4 million research! Altogether, I agree…Continue

I believe that what Don Tapscott said about the Net Generation is correct. Today, we are immerse ourselves with technology all the time. At home, we spend our time on the computer and watching TV, and then away from home we are clinging to our phones. He also stresses 8 Net Gen Norms:

I believe that Don Tapscott was true when he invalidated all the "critics" comments on our generation. These "critics" have skewed and completely biased notions towards today's generation. We do not lack social skills, if anything social media has enhanced our social skills. Nor are we dumb. All these new technologies such as iPhones, iPads, and laptops have made it easier for us to learn all subjects. They also allow us to research more in depth on most subjects. The internet allows…Continue

I do believe that Don Tapscott was right when he said that the critics' comments are invalid. Our generation is in fact more intelligent than the past generations, due to how we have background in both face-to-face socialization and using the internet to communicate. Advancements in technology have merely made our lives easier, it is not that we have become lazy and technology dependent. I also believe that the critics' statements how our generation is full of bullies and stealing and other…Continue

After reading the chapter, I gained a whole new point of view. I never realized how dependent this generation is becoming when it comes to computers and technology. I think that the world should learn to simplify itself, instead of becoming more and more complicated with technological advances. It would be better, but of course, as we live in the 21st century, this is nearly impossible. However, technology is good in some ways, because it helps add to the learning environment. The Flat…Continue

At first, I saw this video and was angry, because I thought that Don Tapscott was being completely unfair and unreasonably biased. But then, as I continued watching the video, I realized that he was saying that that was what all of the critics were saying. That they were being very negative. I agree with Don when he says that we are a smart generation. But maybe we really don't care enough about our society. Still, if all the world has is us right now, they better learn to live and…Continue

At first while watching this video, I was very offended at some of the things Don Tapscott was saying. He was criticizing our generation and how "dumb" we are, or how we "mooch" and "steal" and are constantly "glued" to our monitors. This is false. Those things he said were very stereotypical and biased. However, I lightened up when he was just repeating the critics of our generation and stated how they were wrong, how we're really not the "dumbest" generation, but one of the smartest. It…Continue

So at first, when he was saying all of those things about our generation, I was pretty offended. I was thinking to myself something along the lines of "Who does this Don Tapscott guy think he is?!"
After watching the entire video, I was relieved to know that he doesn't really think these things about our generation. Finally, an adult is…Continue

Hello everyone. My name is Usha. I'm 14, and I go to Allied Health in United States. I don't play sports often, but I like basketball, tennis, volleyball, badminton, and just about all other sports but not football or baseball. For fun, I like to chat and hang out with friends, and listening to music. I like several different artists, such as Mumford and Sons, Linkin Park, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Lady Gaga, Eminem, Kanye West, Jay-Z, and Rihanna. I love music, and I love meeting new…Continue
According to Don Tapscott the Net Generation includes “kid’s born between 1978 and 1997 inclusive.” These eight million children are members of the first digital generation to be born into a society in which technology has already been integrated into daily lives, and continues to expand. As a late member of the Net Generation I can relate to Tapscott’s ideas on how new digital…Continue

The Eight Net Gen Norms include: freedom, customization, scrutiny, integrity, collaboration, entertainment, speed, and innovation. According to Don Tapscott these norms are “distinctive attitudinal and behavioral characteristics that differentiate this [current] generation from their baby-boomer parents and other generations.” I do not believe this to be true. I am certain that my parents and…Continue
