  20. 20. Conclusion 1 n Homo Zappiens develops a range of metacognitive skills: § Enquiry based approaches § Networked learning: thinking as part of networks § Experiential learning: no punishments § Collaborative learning: teams and roles § Active learning: making choices, act § Self organisation: setting goals § Problem solving strategies § Expliciting knowledge to others
  21. 21. Conclusion 2 n Homo Zappiens has a multimedia reference framework and communicates accordingly § Jungle Book, The Matrix, Kill Bill 1 and 2, South Park, TMF, The Box, MTV, Manga, Kollaboration n Homo Zappiens thinks menus and keywords § Computers, cell phones, ipods, pdas, search engines
  22. 22. As a consequence Homo Zappiens is n a creative problem solver n an experienced communicator n a self-directed learner
  23. 23. Conclusion 3 n Students are digital n Universities are analogue n Regular education is still linear n ICT is used for substitution, not for transformation
  24. 24. Digital and Analogue? n Analogue data are fixed § Math formulas on paper § Texts and graphs n Digital data can be manipulated § Math Java Applets § Kazaa, LimeWire § Roller Coaster
