Teaching the iGeneration
Rosen, Larry D.
Educational Leadership, v68 n5 p10-15 Feb 2011
Children and teens today are immersed in technology. Just as we don't think about the existence of air, they don't think about technology and media. Individualized mobile devices have given them the expectation that if they conceive of something, they will be able to make it happen. Yet schools still expect these members of the iGeneration to "unitask," writes Rosen--listening to teacher lectures, completing worksheets, and writing with pen and paper. Bringing technology into education will not only get the iGeneration more involved in learning, but also put teachers in their most effective role, as facilitators of meaning-making.
