‘Digital Natives’ May Be Fleeing Lecture Halls :
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Something is happening this semester that has never happened to me before,Ã¢â‚¬Â writes Kristin Luker, a professor of sociology at the University of California at Berkeley, on a forum for professors. Ã¢â‚¬Â[M]ore than half of my lecture class is just not showing up.Ã¢â‚¬Â Judging by the responses to Ms. LukerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s observation, sheÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not alone.
thank god the students are finally waking up and saying ‘screw this’. the lecture delivery model does not work, all it does is make students have to go home and study to learn the material… why not just bypass it and go home and study if you are able? there is generally, for any course that would be a lecture, plenty of info on the web to help you understand the material.
