Teach Me in the Way I Learn: Education and the Internet Generation

College students learn differently than their professors. This disconnect between learning styles is not a new problem, however the problem has been magnified by the technology driven environment which exists in contemporary higher education. Students who grew up using computers and Playstations while surfing MySpace blogs and listening to their MP3 players are frequently neither receptive to traditional lectures nor able to relate to examples based on 20th century technologies. Numerous tools and technologies, however, can be used effectively to teach college students. This paper discusses several methods of addressing this disconnect through both pedagogical technique and classroom technologies. (Contains 4 figures.)
