SSH Seminar Series: The Times They are A-Changin’…or Are They? KSC Students’ Responses to a 2019 Reading and Tech Engagement Survey
Increasingly, faculty lament about how student learning is changing. We fear Gen Z-ers, who have grown up with tech in all aspects of their lives, no longer read or write at the same level and learn far differently than their Millennial predecessors. If this is so, it impacts the way we teach and our ability to provide our younger learners with effective instruction. This survey of 400 Keene State students explores patterns of reading and tech engagement, and student preferences of traditional vs. technology-intensive methods and assignments, between traditional/non-traditional students, first- and second-generation students, and lower vs. upper grade levels. Has there, indeed, been a technologically-induced shift in reading, learning, and classroom engagement as early Gen Z-ers begin entering college?
