Teaching ‘screenagers’ – how the digital world is changing learners

Teaching ‘screenagers’ – how the digital world is changing learners | Social Media: Changing Our World of Education | Scoop.it

If we really want our education systems to prepare students for tomorrow’s digital world, we should worry less about formats and instead focus on what to teach – or what not to teach. A few obvious candidates for omission would be spelling (thanks to spellcheckers), facts (available instantly and everywhere via the internet), and handwriting (who writes by hand these days?). Instead, why not teach them how to filter reliable from unreliable information, an essential skill for the Google generation? Or even how to see through misleading headlines?Do you agree or disagree??
