    Podcast: The Google Generation -- Myth or Reality?
    intro text:

    JISC is an advisory committee to higher education in the UK.  Periodically, JISC issues research reports about higher education.  Click the icon below to access one of JISC's latest reports dealing with "The Google Generation."

    We have all heard about "Millennial" students and how tech savvy they are supposed to be.  From my experience, I am not at all certain that what we hear is true.  I find that Millennial (Google Generation) students have the fastest thumbs in the west and can answer a cell phone call at the speed of light.  Beyond this, their technology related skills, from an academic perspective, seem quite limited.

    This JISC podcast talks about characteristics of Millennial (Google Generation) students.  It runs about 22 minutes.  Click the icon below to access the JISC website.  Click the start button (>) to listen to the podcast.

    Enjoy.

    Emerging Technologies in Distance Education -- Outstanding Resource
    intro text:

    In July, 2010 AU Press (Athabasca University, Canada) published a book that I think you will find is an excellent resource for ideas about using technology in teaching and learning.  The book entitled Emerging Technologies in Distance Education is edited by George Veletsianos.

    AU Press makes the book available for free in Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) format.  You may download the entire publication or selected chapters.

    This book is worth exploring.  It may not turn you into a "pro from Dover" (to draw on the line from the movie Mash).  However, it should help you better understand how to use technology when you design course materials and share them with your students.

    Enjoy.
