AALL Spectrum article: The Next Generation of Learners

This article is in the April 2007 issue of AALL Spectrum starting on page 8. It is subtitled 'training issues law librarians face in the 21st century.' It is by Gayle Lynn-Nelson.

Focus on younger learners with acknowledgement for all kinds of learners.

Gives outline of different generations, ways they like to learn and suggestions for teaching them. Includes Gen X and Millennial generations. Relates their preferences back to Boomer preferences and styles.

Lists practical activities, sample activities and talks about designing a lesson plan.

I have only glanced at the article, but it looks useful.
