Technology Classroom Profile

I recently surveyed nine middle school students (four boys and five girls) in Nashville, TN. They answered questions regarding how technology impacts their lives. The results support Marc Prensky's, coined the term "Digital Native" and Dr. Dede's research. Please listen to the podcast (click on the word podcast)and consider what changes need to be made in a classroom to teach millennial learners.
