Today the so-called students are now the teachers to Digital Immigrants, when it comes to this new thought process. I love the idea of turning a lecture into an educational video game! However I do believe that there has to be an equal medium of both "old" and "new" teaching techniques. Digital Natives and Digital Immigrants must let their guards down, combine pro and cons and come to a solution around this difference.
