In his article in the Virginia Journal of Education, David Webb reminds us that the internet has changed everything. Kids haven't ever had to look up information without the internet. They can, from their cell phones, look up any information that they might need. They don't have to go to the library to do research. They don't have to know the Dewey decimal system. They can find any information that they want in 5 seconds. They have no reference for a world without technology. To 'demonize the things they think are normal' only creates a wall between us and them.
If you want to connect with kids, it isn't going to work to tell them that, ahem, "When I grew up we had to get our information from the encyclopedia." They don't care. We didn't care that our grandparents had to walk uphill both ways to school. It is us to embrace, or at the very least, understand what they are into and the world they are growing up in.
