"A highly relevant book that gives specific reasons for educators to shift to meet the needs of digital natives. This book is loaded with vignettes and cases to demonstrate how the kids of today think and learn, with strategies to help educators engage today’s tech-savvy students."
“Jukes, McCain, and Crockett provide an excellent argument of why schools are not effectively preparing our students for the 21st-century global workforce. This shift of the paradigm where students move from consumers of knowledge to creators of their knowledge is paramount to students’ future successes.”
“In their new book, Jukes, McCain, and Crockett have broken new ground. While focusing on 21st-century skills, this group of authors has laid important groundwork for lifting our thinking into the 21st century. As they so aptly point out, we cannot correctly identify the skills for the 21st century with thinking still grounded in the 20th century. Jukes, McCain, and Crockett challenge our thinking first and then lead us to what is important for our students to be able to do in this new century. They are right on target for truly understanding the future of educating children.”
“Jukes, McCain, and Crockett have laid out an excellent road map for learning in the 21st century. Readers will have clearer understanding of this digital generation and why our classrooms continue to teach analog students in a digital world.”
“This book dramatically documents the need for educators to recognize that 21st-century learners do not learn like their predecessors. The included research and suggested strategies for change provide hope for the future. As a former Ohio school superintendent and staff development director, I believe this is a must-read for those truly interested in educational reform.”
"Understanding the Digital Generation is grounded in the recognition that today's students are very different from those in the past, and it outlines new approaches to schooling with technology that should be heard and acted upon now."
“This book explores critical questions that intrigue today’s educational leaders: How do I balance the best of the past with the opportunities and realities of the present? How do I balance all that I know with all that we are becoming? And how does all this create the best possible learning environment for our students? A great guide to the future!”
“The students populating today’s schools are fundamentally different from those of previous generations. If we are serious about educating them for life in the 21st century, we must acknowledge this difference and rebalance our approach. In Understanding the Digital Generation, Jukes, McCain, and Crockett fully deliver on their goal of providing a greater understanding of the digital generation and sparking ‘...deep thinking about how instruction should change to teach them effectively.’”
“Jukes, McCain, and Crockett offer up a highly readable, terribly important summary of the attributes of today's technologically enhanced children and explore the urgent implications for today’s schools. Get this book and read it. And then pass it along to your administrators!”
“A book that captures what real learning is all about. Thank you Ian, Ted, and Lee for sharing your knowledge and casting new insight on digital kids. A must-read for every teacher, teaching in this modern, high-tech, digital online world. This book equips teachers to meet these challenges and is the first of its kind to make a significant shift in focus from how teachers teach to how students learn.”
"The authors make a compelling case for the need to transform 20th-century classrooms into 21st-century learning environments to engage digital learners and prepare them to successfully collaborate, create, and compete in the mulitnational workplaces and communities of the new knowledge economy."
"While many assume that 21st-century education merely demands access to hardware and the Internet, our greatest limit is one of pedagogical vision. Jukes, McCain, and Crockett consistently push us to re-imagine the entire premise of learning and collaboration in the future. Best of all, they know how to guide us through a strategic process that ensures our students will remain intellectually agile in a future that extends far beyond the traditional schoolhouse."
"For academic advisors this book is a good resource to provide an understanding and appreciation for the digital generation of students. I recommend this book for academic advisors seeking to better improve their understanding and interactions with students of the digital generation."
