Prensky, Prensky and More Prensky

Off to see Marc Prensky on Friday here in Adelaide. I've been keen to hear him speak since becoming aware of his work via David Warlick, who blogged about him as an A list speaker. I'm going to the event (at the Ramada Grand no less) with a fellow middle school teacher who asked for a few links to get "up to speed" on Prensky's work. I've found his "digital natives / digital immigrant" analogy really useful as it has been the methaphor that has really clicked with some of my colleagues wondering what all the edech fuss is about. So the links I assembled quickly are worth reproducing here as they cover a fair bit of his message.
