  7. 7. Students = Collaborators
  8. 8. The Net Generation “ They prize freedom and freedom of choice. They want to customize things, make them their own. They’re natural collaborators, who enjoy a conversation, not a lecture. They’ll scrutinize you and your organization. They insist on integrity. They want to have fun, even at work or school. Speed is normal. Innovation is life.” Don Tapscott, Grown Up Digital (2008, pp. 6-7) “ I would have never known how to blog, use a wiki … a course management system. These new skills … are going to help get my first job.” “ I have come to understand and appreciate the importance of … collaboration for this course, other parts of life and for a job.” “ Helped me see that turbulence … is to be expected and that it is our job … to turn those problems into opportunities.” Marist Student Testimonials
