Presentation: Playing to Learn

Description:Since 2006, the rate of Internet use for teens aged 12-17 has been 93-94%, with roughly 40% using the Internet “Several Times a Day” (Pew Research, Millenials: A Portrait of Generation Next) The next time you have a student who says they don’t have access to the Internet, stop and consider. To not teach students to use the Internet (and use it appropriately) is akin to leaving out a crucial job/life skill like reading. If that same student said they “didn’t have access to books” how would you respond? Our campuses have both computer labs and libraries. Is it unreasonable for students to be expected to use both if necessary?

Date & Times: Sat. July 31st 7pm-7:30pm LA/ 10pm NYC/ 3am, Sun. London/ 4am, Sun. 8/1 Paris/ 12noon, Sun., Sydney/ 11am, Sun., Tokyo
