International Ballroom D-F
Mountain Time
Session Type: General Session
Emerging digital media are shaping users' motivations, attributes, and social patterns into types of learning styles quite different from those based on sensory, personality, or intelligence factors. Neomillennial students seek learning situations that interweave face-to-face interactions with shared virtual experiences across distance and time (distributed learning). This session will give examples of middle and high school distributed learning experiences based on immersive game-like educational simulations (multiuser virtual environments, augmented realities) and will discuss the implications of students' neomillennial learning styles for higher education.
