Title: e-learning & m-learning for generation Y – the Israeli case
(Joinly organized by SOSC and CHTL)
Speaker/s: Dr. Tamar Almog
Department of Learning Instruction and Teacher Education, University of Haifa, Israel
Abstract: Generation Y (students born during the 1980s and early 1990s) is characterized by their natural access and addiction to digital technology (computers, cell phones, internet, etc.). Nowadays youngsters can no longer learn passively by “talk and chalk”. Our great challenge is to adjust our education system to meet this generation’s needs. Consequently, we must integrate e-learning to our schools and universities.
In this seminar, I will describe some general characteristics of the generation Y, with their advantages and shortcomings as learners. I will also give a glimpse of the variety of opportunities that e-learning offers to learning and teaching, by presenting recent examples from Israel. Different uses of cell phones (m-learning) and Facebook (social networking website) for learning in the digital global age will also be discussed in the seminar.
Time: 12:15 pm – 2:15 pm (light lunch will be provided)
Venue: ACC 209
