I recently attended a meeting where a faculty member made the comment that while students expect certain technologies, they should not be determining the educational technologies provided by the university. My thoughts immediately turned to these oft-referenced writings by Marc Prensky.
Marc Prensky is a speaker, author, and educational game designer. He holds an MBA from Harvard and a Masters in Teaching from Yale. These readings are often referenced in educational articles about the net-generation, constructivist learning, and game-based instruction.
- How do these readings relate to your responsibilities as a DATC?
- Should students drive media selection?
