Does growing up techno-savvy affect learning pathways? CATL discusses

“Technology, the Brain, and Learning: The Benefits and Setbacks of Learning and Teaching in the Millennial Generation” is the title of a workshop organized by the campus Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning. Visiting scholar Donna Van Bogaert, Ph.D., will lead the session from noon to 1:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 13. (The event is part of CATL’s “Teaching in Interesting Times” series.)

While teachers and employers see advances in information retrieval and collaboration among millennial learners, research shows substantive declines in basic communication skills. Are brains evolving with the speed of technology or are cognitive trade-offs the inevitable price paid for keeping up? This session explores Dr. Van Bogaert’s classroom and business experiences with the millennial generation as well as research informing those observations. All are welcome.
