    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.

      In an effort to boost adoption of its Google+ social network, Google this week announced a slew of new features aimed at enticing business customers to use the service and "go Google."

      Citing the success other Web-based Google Apps like Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Docs and Google Drive have found amongst employers and their workers, Google Apps Product Management Director Clay Bavor detailed a slew of new Google+ features for businesses in an official Google Enterprise blog post.

      "Like Google Apps, we think Google+ can help colleagues collaborate more easily and get things done – and get to know each other along the way," wrote Bavor.
