10 Evolution of Generational Learning

11 Generation M Multi-tasker Media Multi-Modal Multi-Nodal Variance (Differentiation) Makes Reaching Them Possible

12 Variance (Variety)

13 Understanding the Individual Differentiation: By definition, differentiation is wary of approaches to teaching and learning that standardize. Standard-issue students are rare, and educational approaches that ignore academic diversity in favor of standardization are likely to be counterproductive in reaching the full range of learners. – Tomlinson (2006)

15 But We Also Know We Have Problems…

16 Whats Wrong With Education? FOR EVERY 100 9TH GRADERS 68 GRADUATE ON TIME OF THOSE, 40 ENROLL DIRECTLY IN COLLEGE OF THOSE, 27 ARE STILL ENROLLED THE FOLLOWING YEAR OF THOSE, 18 EARN AN ASSOCIATES DEGREE WITHIN 3 YEARS OR A B.A. WITHIN 6 YEARS. 82 DONT MAKE IT! -- National center on education and the economy ncee.org

17 Are Students Life-Ready? 2008 Oxford Survey of Most Important Employee Skills Employers said employees achieved 15% of these regularly

18 Technology Demands Purpose Students know when technology without purpose is being imposed on them. Allan Heap, Center for Internet Technology Welding, Telescopes, Automotive, Microscopes, Cadavers, Architecture Software, Bridge Construction Tools, Etc

19 Technology Based Learning Demands Access Permissions Bandwidth

20 But Students Still Demand Technology… The average American students College / University is ____ miles from where the student lives: 1980: 5m 2006: 50m 2009: 78m Eduventures, 2009
