Learning in the 21st Century

Got so excited about the possibilities for conversation about this article that I just had to share this link…

Lev Gonick, the new editor for the New Horizons department of EDUCAUSE Review published an intriguing article titled New Media and Learning in the 21st Century. He states that “The “box” of the classroom will not contain or meet the needs of the new global culture that the Net has spawned. Both millennials, with their native technology proclivities, and the larger population of lifelong learners, returning to education for career enhancement and life enrichment, will have little tolerance for “playing school.” Colleges and universities need to validate and capitalize on the propensities of these learners and leverage their abilities for engaging authentic challenges and each other.” The student expectations that he poses in this article would be very interesting topics of conversation for strategic planning committees.

…now time for me to get back to work … well, maybe, after a few more articles….
