How can we keep the iGeneration interested and passionate about learning when we are constantly competing with technology? That is the question posed by our reviewer of Rewired: Understanding the iGeneration and the Way They Learn, written by Larry D. Rosen. Though she had concerns about Rosen’s “dismissal” of the many drawbacks to multitasking, especially in the classroom, the reviewer felt that this book does provide “some fresh approaches of ways to incorporate technology in the classroom to further engage students.”
