Academia 2.0

Again... very convincing, yet so generalizing. To make the assumption that thousands of students from all across america, from different racial, ethnic, class, genders, etc... are all the same and are all going to learn the same is just too far fetched.

Everyone is different! Yes, things are changing. Yes, we as educators have to change too. Yet we have to accommodate for those students who still come to class with a pencil and notepad and CAN listen to a lecture for 90 minutes and those that come with a laptop and can reduce your lecture to a 200 word blog post.
