Link to “How Are Schools Supporting the Net Generation?”

While working on my journal analysis assignment, I decided to check my email (just one of the many distractions available on my computer). There was my daily ASCD SmartLinks; the first alluring title, “How Are Schools Supporting the Net Generation?,” grabbed my attention. I had to follow it, of course, and was rewarded with a brief article about an address Don Tapscott gave at the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development’s (ASCD) annual convention (Tapscott is the author of Wikinomics and Grown Up Digital). The article is much too brief, but Tapscott apparently discusses strengths of the digital generation, the need to change pedagogy, and the need to do more than just let kids have at it (digital media) in the classroom if we expect good results. Here’s the link:
