  • Doe some of these surprise you???? The one that I recognize in the classroom and at home is busy with extra curricular activities. What does this mean for the classroom?
  • Does this surprise you? Notice how little reading this generation does. Look into your own house, do these figure ring home?
  • If you can bring these characteristics in the classroom, it will increase learning. You might try and reorganize one assignment and then monitor the results.
  • It can include any electronic information and communication device or application, encompassing: radio, television, cellular phones, computer, and network hardware and software, satellite systems and so on, as well as the various services and applications associated with them, such as videoconferencing. Such technologies can be used for educational purposes, namely to support and improve the learning of students and to develop learning environments.
  • Does this look familiar? Educators in their infinite wisdom decided that this should be what the classroom of the future looks like. Does this type of classroom work? What are the problems?

Do use technology to "think out of the box". Think learner-driven, not teacher-oriented. Use technology that's within reach of all students and provides options. Choose approaches that promote active learning. Whenever possible, use interactivity & multimedia to engage students. Keep the interface simple and consistent. Provide remote access to materials when possible. Use technology to help integrate teaching and research.
