Pay Attention: Digital Learners

An interesting video that might get some conversation going about how our students learn and why. This is a conversation that we need to have on an ongoing basis in our schools, because I’m not sure some educators (in my world, anyway) really “get” it.

There’s an old saying that if you keep doing what you’ve always done, then you’ll keep getting what you’ve always gotten. I’m not sure that’s true with our students anymore. I believe that if we keep teaching in the same way we’ve taught in the past, we will end up with disengaged young people who are not prepared for their life in the 21st century–in the flat world.

Here’s the video by Darren Draper at T-4 Jordan School District (Utah). His list of resources is a great supplement to the video as well–the video is posted on that page as well.
