    • Who are you?
      The 21st Century Learner
      Millennnial Generation
    • In order to understand teaching in the 21st Century we will first discover the 21st century learner
    • Generation Theory
      Howe and Strauss (2000) propose that generations form in patterns, not linearily
      Not ALL cohorts share the commonly held traits
      They break from previous generation
      Fulfil the gap left by the vacating older generation
      Howe, N., & Strauss, W. (2000). Millennials Rising: The Next Generation. New York: Vintage Books.

    • Subverting the paradigm: the Millennial Generation
      The Millennials (Howe and Strauss, 2000)
      Born from 1982 to 2002
      Reversing the tendency toward dysfunction and disengagement found in Gen X and Baby Boomer youth
      Positive outlook on school, family, risk, career and politics
      React against the perceived excesses of the baby boomers
      Filling the social role left by the departing generation (World war II, GI.)

    • Millennialsdefined
      Howe and Nadler (2008), Howe (2005)
      I am ‘Special’ – to parents and society, raised in an era where attitudes toward children emphasize greater child protection, in schools, homes and communities
      Sheltered – helicopter parents who schedule as many opportunities as possible for their special children
      Neil Howe.  (2005, September). Harnessing the Power of Millennials. School Administrator, 62(8), 18-22.  Retrieved January 7, 2011, from ProQuest Education Journals. (Document ID: 898481801).

    • Enter technology

    • Great possibilities!
      Today’s young people are smart, teaming up, hardworking, confident and doing well
      The curriculum needs to be more interesting and challenging
      Students more engaged with teachers and each other
      Where ever possible integrate classroom experience with cutting edge networked technology (Howe, 2005)
