Life has changed significantly over the past decade. With the advent of new communication technologies, children are now connected to a world of information. In addition, traditional long-form methods of communication have become less popular.
For example, modern children and teenagers prefer communication methods like Twitter, texting and instant messaging. Talking, emails and physical letters are not used by many younger people.
It’s also important to understand how children and teenagers process information. While adults may value memorization of facts and information, many children may view it as a waste of time. Since most information can be found using a search engine, they may feel there is no need to memorize facts.
Most children place high value on their ability to retrieve information. This can include search engine skills, social network analysis and more.
It’s important to understand how changes in technology have revolutionized learning for children and young adults.
