Understanding the Digital Generation: Teaching and Learning in the New Digital Landscape -
Because of digital bombardment and the emergence of the new digital landscape, "digital natives" process information, interact, and communicate in fundamentally different ways than any previous generations. In this course, Ian Jukes introduces neuroscientific and psychological research that explains how the use of technology, including frequent interruptions and shifts in attention, impacts the functions of the brain. These experiences are re-wiring and re-shaping students' cognitive processes. Consequently, in order to adapt, a fundamental shift in teaching is required to prepare teachers and students for the Information Age. Educators will learn to identify and challenge unconscious and outdated assumptions about schools and learning. They will analyze and revise their beliefs about what constitutes knowledge, critical thinking, and problem solving as they adapt their instructional practices and assessment strategies to the requirements of the digitized 21st century.
