In this presentation, Andrew will explain why he believes it is necessary for educators to adopt new approaches to communicating with a new generation of learners. His intention is not to promote “high-tech” skills in teachers, but rather to encourage widespread adoption of easy-to-use technologies that are ‘high-concept’ and have the power to transform class interaction.
Andrew discusses how any educator is able to change the way he or she communicates with students, taking advantage of the very same digital communication tools that Gen-Y students use. From podcasting to online forums to mobile phones, this presentation will explore the potential in digital communication technologies to challenge where, when and how class members interact, and even who the class members are.
