Digital Media: New Learners of the 21st Century

This video really makes you think about the impacts of technology on learning engagement. It starts with a great quote by John Dewey ” If we teach today’s students as we taught yesterdays, we rob them of tomorrow.”   Students should be prepared for the technology that is out there and be prepared that it will rapidly evolve.  The movie argues that integrating current technology into the classroom/ any learning experience is the best way to do this. I was very interested in the gaming used to make a tour of a old town more interesting for the students. They had to go on a scavenger hunt to learn more.  It was very engaging and the students seemed to love it.  I remember thinking that museums were very boring when I was younger. I think having an interactive game while walking through would have helped me to learn more while also making it an enjoyable experience.
