The Last Backpack Generation


The Last Backpack Generation

Today I received the ASCD SmartBrief a daily mailing of timely articles and blogs that are related to education . I was immediately intrigued by the special report that was presented today. It referred to today’s generation of students as the “last backpack generation.” Education is changing, as is the way it is delivered. Students can access information with the touch of a button and send messages, tweets, pictures, updates etc. at a speed that we have never seen before. This article brings to light ways to make this work for us the teachers. Read it and, let me know what you think. You can also visit the Last Backpack site for ideas and inspiration.
