The Future Tense of Teaching in the Digital Age The digital environment has radically changed how and what students need and want to learn, but have we radically changed how we deliver education? Are educators shifting and adapting or stuck in the traditional That’s the Way We’ve Always Done It world? In this book, educators will be challenged to take action and adapt to a split-screen classroom--thinking and acting to accommodate today’s learners versus allowing traditional practices by default. Written with a touch of humor and a choose-your-own-adventure approach, the authors built chapters to be skimmed, scoured or searched for interesting, relevant or required material. Readers will be able to jump in where it serves them best.  • Consider predictions about what learning will look like in the future.  • Understand and learn to leverage nine core learning attributes of digital generations.  • Discover ten critical roles educators can embrace to remain relevant in the digital age. Keep things simple, concentrate on how learners learn, and change your approach from present to future tense.
