"Generational Differences" is a real thing. Combined with massive change and the exponential growth of innovation in our world, it seems to get trickier every year to "keep up" with students. The struggle is real for many teachers. However, there are many bold teachers who have crossed over "to the other side" and are learning how these students are really communicating. Below are 8 great ways to connect with your students.
Most students who have their own mobile device are constantly connected, so much that they deem their devices as necessary as the shirt they are wearing. They wouldn’t walk out of the house without a shirt on, nor would they go anywhere without their mobile devices. Rather than settle on their device addiction for merely social needs, as educators we can harness this fixation to meet our educational objectives. Encouraging students to use their devices for PBL will benefit their motivation and provide depth to their projects.
