Student of the Future

Posted on by

My youngest child, Eric, was born in the last year of the “Millennial” generation (1981-2000). When I recently mentioned to him that I was going to begin writing a blog and was not exactly sure how to get going, my nine year old casually replied “A blog is just a virtual diary Daaad. I blog with my friends about the music I listen to all the time.” It never ceases to amaze that kids just seem to embrace what is new and innovative, whether it’s music or technology. I suppose it’s my fascination in how my own children learn and communicate that plays a large part of my passion for higher education.
