Planning for Neomillennial Learning Styles
Dede, Chris
EDUCAUSE Quarterly, v28 n1 p7-12 2005
Rapid advances in information technology are reshaping the learning styles of many students in higher education. Many faculty will find such a shift in instruction difficult, but through professional development they can accommodate neomillennial learning styles to continue teaching effectively as the nature of students evolves. Beyond this professional development, to fulfill their students' evolving needs and interests, colleges and universities must reconsider their investments in physical plant, technology infrastructure, and research. Further, in the long run the mission and structure of higher education might alter due to the effect on civilization of these new interactive media. This article discusses how the millenial learning styles will prompt a shift to active construction of knowledge through mediated immersion. (Contains 14 endnotes.)
