Net Genners

I had the honor of interviewing Doug Johnson the other day for the SLJ VSB. He's the Director of Media and Technology for the Mankato (MN) Area Public Schools he also writes, speaks and consults on school technology and library issues. For educators and librarians he highly recommends the ebook, Educating the Net Generation by Diana Oblinger and James Oblinger.
Just passing it along and printing it out now.

"The Net Generation has grown up with information technology. The aptitudes, attitudes, expectations, and learning styles of Net Gen students reflect the environment in which they were raised—one that is decidedly different from that which existed when faculty and administrators were growing up."

This blurb is from the Educause Website.

Thanks for the recommendation. Looked at the reviews and contents and I am definately going to add it to my ever growing reading list!
Thanks Mary,
I can't wait to start reading this one myself.
Your list is certainly a valued one I'll begin during summer break. Much thanks for sharing it.
