watch this EDUCAUSE 2008 prez

Here’s a good presentation from EDUCAUSE 2008:

Update 10/31: I hope you took the 55 minutes to sit through this presentation, especially if you teach and are, as Robbins says, “in pain” about the loss of control of your students. She’s right that we have to embrace new technologies and new ways of interacting with information or we will lose our students. And we don’t want to lose them to their own devices without the necessary critical eye to evaluate and synthesize information.

And here at Tri-C, we must also help students without technological savvy to get up to speed, so that they can participate as fully as needed. That might mean adding a little skills training to your course or investigating existing offices that can teach skills to students or launching a good program of technology literacy.
