Teachers Talking - Mark the Date!

Monday, December 5, 2005 (Around 8 years ago)

Join us on Thursday, January 12th in the Banquet Room at 11:30 or 12:30 for a discussion of Scott Carlson’s Chronicle of Higher Education article, “The Net Generation Goes to College.” The article addresses the question: “Tech-savvy ‘Millennials’ have lots of gadgets, like to multitask, and expect to control what, when, and how they learn. Should colleges cater to them?” Join us for some tasty multitasking as we discuss technology, teaching, and the future. Good conversation. Free lunch.

Subscribers can read the article online or you can find the article in Academic Search Premier (requires logging in with your Gustavus ID barcode and last name) with an html full text version.

A companion article in Slate offers a student view - worth a read: “The Rules of Distraction” by Avi Zenilman
