A lively, entertaining presentation given at uLearn by Lee Crocket – a man after my own heart who believes in really visual presentations :-)!! Well worth watching if you are wondering if learners of today are “wired differently”.
The description from the EdTalks site reads: “Lee Crockett is an award winning designer, marketing consultant, speaker, and co-author of Understanding the Digital Generation. Lee’s keynote presentation at ULearn10 is an intelligent and humorous look at the differences between digital learners and those that are educating them. Lee believes that we need to provide students with a fundamentally different set of skills; “We don’t need four year degrees any more, we need 40 years of learning and relearning.”
