    • Yesterday’s learners…
      • “… didn’t expect to be engaged by everything they did. There were no video games, no CDs, no MP3s—none of today’s special effects. Those kids’ lives were a lot less rich…
      • … less rich in media, less rich in communication, much less
      • rich in creative opportunities for students outside of school.
      • Many if not most of them never even knew what real engagement felt like.”
      • -- Marc Prensky, EDUCAUSE r e v i e w September/October 2005 marcprensky.com

    • Today’s learners
      • “… have something in their lives that’s really engaging—
      • something that they do and that they are good at…
      • … today’s kids are challenging us, their educators, to engage them at their level, even with the old stuff, the stuff we all claim is so important, that is, the “curriculum.””
