Tapscott on Teaching the Net Generation



Don Tapscott, author of Grown Up Digital and Wikinomics, wants educators to be more fearless in their use of technology. In this video, he declares, "Public education is the foundation of a civilized society; to defend it, we need to reinvent it."

Information technology, Tapscott adds, presents an opportunity to shift learning so that it is more student-focused, customized, and collaborative. Read more about Tapscott's eight norms for reshaping pedagogy for what he calls the "Net Generation" in this related blog post.
