Screenagers. Research Brief
Williamson, Ronald
Education Partnerships, Inc.
A "screenager" is a slang term used to describe teenagers who spend lots of time in front of digital screens (iPods, iPads, computers, other digital devices) (Webpodedia, 2011). The term is also used to describe the digital generation, students who are skilled at using technology to learn and communicate (Scherer, 2011). Given their comfort with the use of digital tools for communication, learning and productivity, screenagers are impacting the way schools are organized for learning. The digital tools used by these students have potential to make learning more relevant and engaging. (Lists 5 online resources and 2 print resources.)
