The 21st-Century Student

An interesting take on the present state of university classrooms and pedagogy:



QUESTIONS:
Is the internet (i.e. web 2.0 technologies like Google docs, which the video refers to) the only way to mend the disconnect inherited from the 19th C?
If so, how do colleges and universities truly breach the digital divide?
How do we continue to reach students who learn in different ways? Are there web applications that we can use to appeal to all types of learners?
