Larry Rosen

In this workshop, Dr. Rosen will expand on the notion of how young learners in the iGeneration and Generation “C” use technology and how their preferences impact learning both in the classroom and in the home. The workshop will first examine, in detail, characteristics of these new generations and how their values have been influenced by their constant immersion in technological environments. Using those values as guidelines, the workshop will take the approach that we can adopt educational models that keep the role of the teacher as expert while modifying the delivery systems to include those technologies that are already attractive to these young learners in the environments in which they learn best. Alternative models will be provided that capitalize on the unique tech-savvy nature of the iGeneration and Generation C to inspire, engage and immerse them in the learning process. These models will couple new and engaging technologies with best educational practices in providing multi-learning environments options for our new generations of student learners. Dr. Rosen will use a down-to-earth style that is both humorous and positive and will provide a solid foundation for advancing the educational experiences of students, educators and parents.
