Some Feel our Students “Do not read anymore”<br />Why do we perceive this trend?<br />
The life experiences that shaped today's students are quite different from those of previous eras. <br />Marc Prensky estimates that by the time an individual reaches 21 years of age they will have spent:<br />
5,000 hours reading<br />10,000 hours playing video games<br />10,000 hours on the cell phone<br />20,000 hours watching TV<br />In addition, he estimates the individual will have sent 200,000 emails<br />
SO? We’re online! This doesn’t surprise us!<br />
