The Student 2.0 | Theory | HYBRID PEDAGOGY

The Student 2.0 | Theory | HYBRID PEDAGOGY | Exam English | Scoop.it

 

" Students are evolving.  The student 2.0 is an altogether different animal from the student 1.0.  And our classrooms are ecosystems, an environment all their own, where we each must decide how to engage this new species of student.  We teeter at a slowly disintegrating threshold, one foot in a physical world and the other in a virtual one.  Our students are no longer just bodies in desks; they are no longer vessels.   They have become compilations, amalgams, a concatenation of web sites.  They are the people in front of us, but also their avatars in World of Warcraft and the profiles they create on FaceBook.  They speak with mouths, but also with fingers tapping briskly at the keys of their smart phones.  When they want to “reach out and touch someone,” they use Skype and Twitter.  They have become more than just ears and eyes and brains to feed.  Now, they feed us, and themselves, and each other, with an endless parade of texted and tweeted characters.  Shouldn’t we, as teachers 2.0, work with not against the flow of these seemingly errant 1s and 0s?  Shouldn’t student-centered learning address itself, as fully as possible, to this new breed of student?"
