How 21st Century Thinking Is Just Different - TeachThought | Online students' motivation and engagement | Scoop.it

If the 20th century model was to measure the accuracy and ownership of information, the 21st century’s model is form and interdependence. The close thinking needed to grasp this is not beyond the reach of a typical middle school student, but it may be beyond their thinking habits.

Why first-year college students select online research resources as their favorite by James P. Purdy

Why first-year college students select online research resources as their favorite by James P. Purdy | Online students' motivation and engagement | Scoop.it


This paper reports results of a preliminary study on why first–year college students select certain online research resources as their favorite. Results, based on a survey of over 500 U.S. college students in first–year writing classes, offer a more complex picture of student motivation than popular accounts of these students as disinterested, lazy, and ignorant. Students reported most frequently that they favored resources for reasons of ease, quality, and connectivity. They reported least frequently that they favored resources for reasons of relevance, variety, and speed. These results suggest that students value finding scholarly sources above relevant sources.
