Don Tapscott's Grown Up Digital describes the Net Generation (Millenials?) approach to technology, social networking, education, work, life, etc. Tapscott spends a lot of time differentiating those for whom technology is like air from those (me and the other boomers) who believe in our cores that it's magic.

For educators, some of the keys include putting to rest once and for all the 'sage on the stage' approach to the classroom, and underscoring an approach that is much more collaborative and conversational.

Worth reading, and worth checking out his blog.
