  • Question for college/grad school professors: have you noticed a change in students the last 5 years, due to social media/mobile? #
  • A colleague told me yesterday that his students interact differently than 3-4 years ago, due to their technology exposure. True? #
  • Re: my last tweet, my colleague said students less willing to write, listen, focus, than 3-4 years ago. I haven't seen as dramatic a shift. #
  • *Of course* the info/tech environment changes brains, which changes learning, and profs must evolve. I just don't see the fast shift. #
  • @davisshaver Nope, I'm at UPenn, not Penn State. Have no clue what Amit thinks about this stuff. #
  • @wa8dzp No, I don't see a baseline of student psychology. It's always changing. I was different than my parents b/c we grew up with TV. #
  • I'm totally reconfiguring my teaching because of affordances of technology, not because I think students are suddenly different. #
