HistoryTalk: There is No Millennium Generation

HistoryTalk: There is No Millennium Generation

Where are these students? Who has them in class? The digital generation strikes me as the most unexamined assumption in contemporary business and education culture. I teach at a metro university in a relatively affluent area of the US. One would expect that my students would be representative of the “raised-by-computers” generation. They are not.

In her post, Paula links to the New York Times story and the TeacherTube video related to the "digital generation." Interesting food for thought for anyone interested in the future of teaching, studying, researching, and writing history.
