In this keynote address Dr. Rosen will provide an overview of how the rapid pace of technology has spawned “mini generations” of learners including the iGeneration and their younger brothers and sisters in Generation “C” who are defined by their technology choices. With an emphasis on how the brain processes information, coupled with an understanding of how technology impacts brain function, Dr. Rosen will examine media and technology use across generations including the use of smartphones, social media, electronic communication and multitasking. Citing research from his own laboratory and that of researchers around the globe, Dr. Rosen will provide a picture of today’s young learner and a prescription of how to education needs to adapt teaching strategies to better educate our iGeneration and Generation C teens and children. To quote Dr. Rosen, “The technology train has left the station and it is imperative that we modify our educational models to best educate this new high-tech learner in their preferred learning environments.”
