Students in the School of Communications At Hofstra University in New York are currently engaging in an entire week without Facebook, texting on their phones, without the internet. These digital natives will be forced to imagine a world without the convenience of Google, Wikipedia and instant communication tools. Not that these world altering tools are bad; the idea behind this experiment is to broaden the students’ perception of themselves in the world: a world without “mice;” a world where “grounded,” community involvement, group work takes on a whole new meaning. Imagine Cyta, the main internet provider on the island going down for a week! To be honest, I don’t think it would be just the digital natives who would suffer. What do you think?
