What technologies are revolutionizing education? Who are the Generation Zers? The iGeneration? The Millennials? What is the difference between these groups of learners? Are our teaching and leading practices changing to meet the demands of these "prosumers" (producers = consumers)? How do they learn, communicate, connect, engage, power-up? Are we enraging them, or engaging them? Watch this brief video and discover that "Social media isn't a fad; it is a fundamental shift in the way we communicate." What fundamental shifts in schooling are happening in your buildings? What conversations are you having with teams of teachers and leaders to create new behaviors and new paradigms? How vigilant are you to leverage these social media tools to impact not only culture, but learning and the art of teaching?
