Comprehensible Input and Digital Native Learners

Web 2.0 and web 3.0 have immersed children as quick learners of technology use and language. Learners are more focused with an ability to think, learn and share information quickly. They are clear about their learning style preferences. Despite the digital revolution still many teachers provide learning material through traditional materials and activities. Obviously the comprehensible input is not interesting and the digital natives are disinterested and they cannot be actively engaged in the learning process. As learners they see a dichotomy between the teacher and learner. One of the best methods in involving the learner completely in the learning process is to engage them through the active learning tasks which will be interesting and the learner will negotiate meaning from the comprehensible input. Lower intermediate learners’ learning preferences in a classroom is more towards digital resources from the Youtube. The video clips from the Youtube are valuable for learning a language especially listening tasks in the classroom with good comprehensible input.
