Reaching net-generation learners with social technologies Reaching net-generation learners with social technologies Presentation Transcript

  • Reaching net-generation learners with social technologies Maarten Cannaerts – DE NAYER
    • “ I find it very difficult to concentrate myself on boring courses.”
    • I'm sorry that I am apparently an inconvenience to your precious time, but you are my advisor and I'm pretty sure it is your job to clarify any misunderstandings that I might have….. maybe you should reconsider your role as an advisor…. I thought communicating with an actual person might be more helpful than trying to search for one particular answer in twenty pages of information.
