The Learning Circuits Blog: 20% of most groups of students are mentally dropped out

Learning Circuits challengs us with: The Learning Circuits Blog: 20% of most groups of students are mentally dropped out

While we may argue percents, there is little doubt that if you walk into any classroom today, you will generally see students mentally somewhere else.

Is this the fault of students- often attributed to ADD or some other illness? Or, is this the fault of educators and developers who still apply 'baby boomer' educational styles to newer generations?

Imagine what will happen when the toddlers today, who are now overwhelmed with learning devices like LeapFrog hit the workforce. What will happen if we continue to teach 'baby boomer' style?
