NetGens 2.0 and Cloud Watching

Great article in the EDUCAUSE review of Jan./Feb. 2009, written by Malcolm Brown (The NetGens 2.0: Clouds on the Horizon). The article differentiates between NetGen 1.0 and NetGen 2.0 with NetGen 2.0’s being more at home “in the cloud”. But my favourite quote from the article is this:

“Although the NetGens 2.0 are at home in the clouds, it would be a mistake to assume that they are more likely to be all-around IT whiz kids than are their NetGen 1.0 forebears. Despite being cloud natives, many may lack the skills they need to successfully accomplish academic work at the higher education level.”

There are more great nuggets in the article – go read it!
