How 'Google generation' technology is effecting HE

How 'Google generation' technology is effecting HE | higher news | "A UK-wide independent inquiry that will look at how the use of new technologies by the 'Google generation' will shape higher education was launched today.

Prof Sir David Melville, former vice-chancellor of the University of Kent, is to chair the inquiry, which will consider the impact of the newest technologies - such as social networking and mobile devices - on the behaviour and attitudes of learners who are approaching or have just arrived at university, and the issues this poses for universities and colleges."

Definitely on my 'one to watch' list! Wonder how long this inquiry will last though? And if the mutation from web 2.0 to 3.0 will have happened by the time it's ready to announce anything productive?!

Cynics 'r' us today. Is that what Feb 29th does for a gal??
