Message from Dr. Belinda S. Miles: Summer Reading Resource – July 28
July 28, 2017
I recently shared an article about how students’ experiences, needs and lifestyles have changed over the past decade, especially with regard to how they engage and use technology. As a society, we often make assumptions about Millennials and Generation Z, especially with regard to their use of and familiarity with technology. Students may not be as tech savvy as the media might lead us to believe. While many of our students are digital natives, we should use care in making assumptions about their access to technology as well as their skill in using various devices and applications in the classroom. This week’s article discusses “technical diversity” and misconceptions regarding students’ technical knowledge, as well as ways to help students learn how to use software and applications that will help them to succeed not only in the classroom but in the workforce as well.
