Windham, Carie
EDUCAUSE Review, v40 n5 p43-44,46,48,50,52,54,56,58 Sep-Oct 2005
To bridge the technology cultural gap between many faculty and administrators and the youngest generation of college students, this author, a recent graduate, reveals what being a "Net Gener" really means and how that can translate to the classroom. She discusses what she considers the basic principles that guide the Net Generation: (1) Interaction; (2) Exploration; (3) Relevancy; (4) Multimedia; (5) Instruction; (6) IT Code of Conduct; and (7) Classroom Etiquette.
