Dr. Larry Rosen’s new book Rewired: Understanding the iGeneration and the Way They Learn looks at how technologies available to children today (the iGeneration) are affecting the ways they best learn. He observes children texting during class, studies the technologies they’re using on their own time and applies his observations (and clinical research) to suggestions for educators and parents for how to engage students.
Go to the interview page to listen, as well as to get resource links and the transcript*.
Dr. Rosen is also answering questions via an author chat, until September 5th, if you’d like to ask questions or follow the conversation.
*I’m hoping to crowdsource the transcript, so if you have time to listen and transcribe a bit of the podcast, it will help those who aren’t able to listen.
