I found this video reading Bertrand's fantastic blog and wanted to share it here too. It's about the millennials (aka net-gener's) and learning. I thought it particularly relevant considering some of the "concerns" popping up around the Internet leading to a dark age or the decline of society as a whole.
My personal opinion is that social media can improve learning but it requires engagement vs consumption and thinking vs finding. We can hope our students learn this on their own, or we can teach them how to think and engage. But then again, "hope" is not a strategy.
Enjoy the video and let me know what you think.
