Digital Learners @ Analog Schools

This is an amazing video of students talking about why they cannot use digital technologies in support of their learning. Very powerful stuff.

From the description of the video (found on TeacherTube):

"Students today are native to technology and schools seem to be stuck in the past. They are not accommodating to todays digital learners. Here is a video where students speak out on what it means to be a digital student at a analog school."

So true - as educators let's listen to our learners and let them, as part of a learning-centred experience, select the ways that best allow them to express and reflect on their learning...

(Thanks to Randommind for pointing this out to me)
