Caitlin McGowan QU 101 - Section 69 TuTh 3:30-4:45 Prof. Engelsgaard October 8, 2010 Community Event #2 Debate: "The Digital Generation and the Future of Education.” On October 5, 2010, Marc Prensky and Mark Bauerlein argued the digital generation and the future of education. Prensky believes that technology is our future while on the other hand; Bauerlein believes technology is jeopardizing our future. Our generation today is all about technology and the World Wide Web, it is how we socialize, learn, and interact with others. One of the questions Prensky and Bauerlein argued was, do digital tools enhance maturity or hinder it? "I'm amazed at the things my kids are able to do online, but I'm also a little bit panicked when I realize that no one seems to know where all this technology is taking us, or its long-term effects," (Digital Nation) I believe technology does hold back maturity because there is no interaction involved. Technology is leading to less and less face-to-face communication.
