Preparing for the Real Web Generation

Journal of Educational Technology Systems Volume 35, Number 3, ISSN 0047-2395


Some have called the current generation of college students the Web generation. They are wrong! The pace of technology change continues to quicken. The effects of globalization and social networking have not yet had their full impact. At best, the present students represent a transitional group. The tools we use define us, and the media revolution is changing so fast that in a decade we will be dealing with college-age students as different from today's college students as current college students are different from their teachers. How can faculty prepare themselves to teach the current transitional generation and also begin to understand the true Web generation that will arrive on campus in another decade?
