Stephen Noonoo in his THE JOURNAL article:
Global Collaboration Projects that Go Way Beyond Skype

describes the “flattening” of the high school classroom, where students use communication technologies well beyond Skype (Edmodo) to works with peers in real time around the world. The idea of flattening involves peer-to-peer mentoring (Vygotsky’s “zone”) besides high school students growing with the consciousness of growing in a global world.

Those will be the students, who in several years will be entering our (higher ed) environment. Are we ready for them?

Per our older blog entry:
do we know and understand the students who are coming soon to our classroom?

Who is coming to college after the Millennials?

How did you figure out the Millennials? I found the following book

Howe, N., & Strauss, W. (2000). Millennials rising : the next great generation /by Neil Howe and Bill Strauss ; cartoons by R.J. Matson. New York : Vintage Books, 2000.!

very helpful. Here is more about their “generational theory”

The Millennials are gradually graduating and a new generation is entering our higher education.

If you are interested to learn about the 2017-2020 graduates at college and adjust your teaching practices to their habits, understandings etc., here is a helpful book:

Levine, A., Levine, A., & Dean, D. R. (2012). Generation on a Tightrope : A Portrait of Today’s College Student. San Francisco: Jossey-Bass.
