Planning for Neomillennial Learning Styles

Article by Chris Dede in Educause Quarterly that explores how shifts in students' learning style will prompt a shift to active construction of knowledge through mediated immersion.Rapid advances in information technology are reshaping the learning styles of many students in higher education. Many faculty will find such a shift in instruction difficult, but through professional development they can accommodate neomillennial learning styles to continue teaching effectively as the nature of students evolves. Beyond this professional development, to fulfill their students' evolving needs and interests, colleges and universities must reconsider their investments in physical plant, technology infrastructure, and research. Further, in the long run the mission and structure of higher education might alter due to the effect on civilization of these new interactive media.Keywords: neomillennial learning styles, generation y, generation why
