21st Century Learners
Today’s students live in a digital world. Technology is one of the primary ways they interact with their surroundings, using it to communicate, collaborate, organize and create. These same skills and behaviors will be prerequisites for success as they enter the workforce.
Integrating technology into the library and classroom lets students develop skills that prepare them for their future success. Technology helps students become expert communicators. It builds strong teamwork skills and encourages participatory learning. It helps students think critically and learn how to find and deploy information.
Technology is also a big part of how students say they want to be taught. Students want to use and benefit from technological tools at school in the same way they do at home. They’re looking for personalized, participatory learning. For example, 63% of students say they want the ability to personalize a digital book with electronic highlights and notes. eBooks and other digital devices increase engagement by allowing students to learn the way they want to, with the technology they’ve already embraced outside of school.
