Summary
"Digital media and connectedness are today an integral part of the lives of learners. This creates opportunities to fundamentally transform teaching and learning in formal education. This unique book tackles three questions to contribute to filling the knowledge gap. First, can the claim that today's students are New Millennium Learners, or digital natives, be sustained empirically? Second, is there consistent research evidence demonstrating the effects of technology adoption on cognitive development, social values, and learning expectations? Third, what are the implications for educational policy and practice?"--P. [4] of cover
