Confucius has said,
“They must often change, who would be constant in happiness or wisdom?”
And so I encouraged my senior humanities class doing a business course to change from a ‘limited use of technology assignment’ to an assignment that evaluated not only their conceptual understanding of business terms but also their technology skills.
The main reason for introducing this assignment that involved a video production on a business concept is my innate belief that, students of this generation (X or is it Y now?) are in their comfort zone when using technology whether they understand the complexities of it or not because that is what sparks and stimulates elements of creative thinking in them.
I hope to be able to substantiate my theory of creative stimulus in today’s digital native learners with research, journaling through observation of students attitudes towards the assignment, the learning process and students own feedback and reflection over the assignment.
