‘How do they even do that?’: How Today’s Technology is Shaping Tomorrow’s Students

In this wide ranging new talk that was given as a part of Dartmouth College’s Strategic Planning process and their “Leading Voices in Higher Education Speaker Series,” Amanda Lenhart talked about the technological milieu of today’s teens and college students as they grew from children to young adults and the ways in which each major new technological development disrupted our previous communication strategies. The talk also explored the ways that social media is changing campus culture as well as how digital tools are changing where learning happens – MOOCs and mixed classes, flipped classrooms—as well as how it occurs for K-12 as well as within higher education.
