Digital Natives and Covid-19: A Vision For Updating Teaching
The period of the COVID-19 pandemic confronted all participants of the education system with one simple fact: remain without classes or continue teaching remotely. Similar to other countries where the COVID-19 pandemic spread, Slovenia also started teaching remotely. All participants in this process had to acquire or update their skills of use of information technology tools in a very short time in order to be able to teach remotely. The children we teach to, belong to the generation of digital natives who experience the world through the information technology tools, already in the living (family) environment from an early age. The period of teaching remotely brought teachers closer to the information perception of digital natives which is related to the living and school environment and also to the virtual environment. This period encouraged teachers to think about a vision for updating teaching with information technology tools.
