EDUCAUSE | Resources | Educating the Net Generation

EDUCAUSE | Resources | Educating the Net Generation

excerpt: The Net Generation has grown up with information technology. The aptitudes, attitudes, expectations, and learning styles of Net Gen students reflect the environment in which they were raised—one that is decidedly different from that which existed when faculty and administrators were growing up.

This collection explores the Net Gen and the implications for institutions in areas such as teaching, service, learning space design, faculty development, and curriculum. Contributions by educators and students are included. Professional printing options are available.

The chapter on libraries is particularly helpful. This points to what our next generation of students will be.
