1 Teaching the Net Generation: Using Multimedia, Film, and Literature in the Developmental Classroom Jasmine Case, Holly Hassemer, Patti See

2 What is the Net Generation? Net generation (Tapscott) – Born between 1977 and 1996 – Grew up bathed in bits – Engage naturally in high tech activities Digital natives (Prensky) – Born since 1980 – Have an innate confidence in using technology – Are plugged into multimedia devices

3 Why use multimedia, film, and literature? Digital natives thrive in a multimedia classroom. Berk (2009)

4 Why use multimedia, film, and literature? Although young peoples newfound skills are justifiably trumpeted by both generations it would be unfortunate if this blinds us to the real challenge of using digital media, namely the potential for engagement with information and education content. Livingstone (2009)

5 Why use multimedia, film, and literature? For net generation undergraduates, clicking replaces thinking. Brabazon (2007)

6 Why use multimedia, film, and literature? Kids are so busy self-broadcasting … on social networks that they no longer consume the creative works of professional musicians, novelists, or filmmakers. Keen (2007)

7 Teaching with TED Using TED Talks to discuss motivation, goal setting, perseverance. – Mid-terms, final exam time – Another voice to offer advice/initiate conversation – Play in class (range from 6-20 minutes, typically) to prompt a discussion or send to students via or Facebook – Angela Lee Duckworth: The key to success? Grit – Ken Robinson: Schools Kill Creativity

8 Teaching with TED Using TED to discuss rhetorical features of a text. – Offer a variety of texts as possibilities for the assignment: TED Talks, NYT Opinion pieces, Colbert Report segments, etc. – Structured arguments; most under 20 minutes Also great for showing successful strategies for a presentation (tone, visuals, posture, hand gestures, etc.)
