Authentic Learning Resources

Here is where you can find resources to my presentation on authentic learning. Here's the link to my actual Prezi. The resources themselves almost all are listed in my 26 Aug 2009 blog post. Of course, you'll also want to explore Prezi! Leave a comment here, however, if I've missed something (or email me by clicking on my profile link to the left).

The Millenials Are Here

I find myself talking a lot about Net Generation learners, a.ka. the Millenials (see p. 70 of this link) . At UAB, my classes aren't totally undergraduates; so, it's taken me a few more years than most college professors to have my audience transition to taking on the culture of their world. Now, it's in place. These smart, savy, caring students are raising the bar on what learning looks like and how teaching needs to change, especially since many of them have grown up as students in the early school reforms of the 90's or in the more mature reforms of this decade. Bring it, Millenials! Let's change the world.
