Adults need to know the reason for learning something (Need to Know) Experience (including error ) provides the basis for learning activities (Foundation). Adults need to be responsible for their decisions on education; involvement in the planning and evaluation of their instruction (Self-concept). Adults are most interested in learning subjects having immediate relevance to their work and/or personal lives (Readiness). Adult learning is problem -centered rather than content-oriented (Orientation). Adults respond better to internal versus external motivators (Motivation). http://farm1.static.flickr.com/186/479780770_4bed8c6382_o_d.jpg

A tool I use for a core need; communication with other instructional technologist
As I started thinking ahead to what I wanted to present, this thread of conversation got underway in twitter
A reply to the first message
I chime in with my $.02
an example of laptops being blocked is mentioned
From educause.edu/ecar october 2009 roadmap Top line is undergraduate student desktop computer ownership Middle line is laptop ownership Bottom line is the years for each survey point
Pen and paper Is this banned from use in the classroom by students? How many distractions can we think of which can come from allowing pen and paper in the room? So, laptops are banned?
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3158/3041307439_2dfb82998c_b_d.jpg Nightmare scenario? K12 experience includes laptops in the classroom, SBU says no?
We are living in an Information Age, and computers (laptops) are a tool we use for, with, against that information. A part of the “global society” we are “preparing” “our servant-leaders” for This is a vast amount to cope with, and we’re saying No Tools?!?!
Hardees Commercial, but could not find the right version? “ I may not know much about this MyFace and Spacebook stuff, but I know a good burger when I eat it” SBU Faculty, you know your hamburgers. Students want to know what you know about the subjects you are an expert in

A closing bit of humor Show video (giving a disclaimer “in no way represents the views of…” Wrap up with willing to change, ‘cause that is how you learn, and students will model your example So, as another way of saying it…
