The April/May edition of Innovate is now online – and interestingly it deals with the topic of the Net Generation – this is a generation that has grown up with video games, computers, and the Internet. In light of my blog comments a couple of days back about Don Tapscott’s 1998 book on this topic it is timely that some more current thinking and research on the topic emerges.
The intro to the site says…
The expectations, attitudes, and technological fluency of this new generation present both a challenge and an opportunity for educators. In this special issue of Innovate, we examine how educators and educational systems can respond to the challenge and leverage the opportunity.
There are seven chapters from ten authors that look like they’ll provide me with some interesting reading over Easter!
