Rewired: Understanding the iGeneration and the way they learn

Abstract


Larry D. Rosen argues for the need to more fully embrace technology and to incorporate digital media when educating young technologically advanced student cohorts. Rewired: Understanding the iGeneration and the Way They Learn is a good introduction to recent research on the use of technology by young people, and the pedagogical potential of utilising the rapid and unique changes in behaviour of this demographic. However, the book lacks consideration of the ethics of such a pedagogical approach in terms of the implications for students' health, labour and other environmental factors.
