Today's learners are digital natives (and also we can call them N-Generation=Native Generation, D-Generation=Digital Generation), and the teachers (and also many educators) are digital immigrants. Thus, there is a challanging point between learner and teacher. In order to make this gap close, we must develop new curriculums based on educational and instructional technologies.
When we examine the teachers and the students in current century, we can see a gap between them based on information and communication technologies skills. Most of the teachers are digital immigrants (Prensky, 2001) and most of the students are digital natives (Prensky, 2001). In many schools, we have computers, laptops, interactive white boards, projectors, and all other information technologies. The challenging point is this, how can we use these technologies in the right way to prepare the learner for the 21st century? This question makes us think about importance of teachers’ education.
